Tosaf launches a line of BOPE additives

June 25/2021

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Tosaf, Alon Tavor, Israel has developed new additive masterbatches that are specially tailored to the orientation process of PE films, said the company.

This portfolio currently includes slip, antiblock, antistatic and antifog additives. The option of using them individually or in combination gives manufacturers a high degree of flexibility in meeting specific product requirements.

In close cooperation with Bruckner Maschinenbau, a manufacturer of film stretching systems based in Siegsdorf, Tosaf has validated the good processing properties of the BOPE masterbatches. As these pilot tests have shown, films made with them meet high optical and functional requirements without compromising mechanical properties.

In addition, the masterbatch manufacturer has demonstrated the good processing properties that result from using the new additives on a production line. The results also show the suitability of the BOPE additives for the production of inline monoaxially stretched films (Machine Direction Orientated, MDO), which are emerging as a further production trend.

As per MRC, Biaxplen company (part of SIBUR Holding) developed a metallized film of the HBV.M brand, which has high barrier properties. There are only a few companies all over the world capable of producing films with such characteristics. The new brand will be produced at the Kursk plant Biaksplena. The production capacity will be 500 tons per year. The launch of the film is scheduled for the second half of 2021.

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, Russia's PP deliveries to the Russian market were 523,900 tonnes in January-April 2021, up by 55% year on year. Supply of homopolymer PP and PP block copolymers increased, whereas shipments of PP random copolymers decreased.

Tosaf holds a full range of standard additives and compounds for the production of BOPP films, as well as exclusive innovations such as a high processability matt compound, scratch-free matt compound, high gloss pearl, permanent hot slip, and anti-microbial MB.
