BOPP (Biaxially Oriented Polypropylene) is a polypropylene film that has been stretched in both the machine and across both directions. BOPP film has become one of the most popular, high growth films in the world. 

Characteristics of BOPP:

  • Excellent Clarity
  • High tensile Strength
  • Good Dimensional Stability and Flatness
  • Low Electrostatic Charge
  • Corona treatment on one or both sides
  • Waterproof
  • Reverse Printing Ability
  • High Gloss
  • Good Performance on High Speed Printing

Common applications for BOPP Bags:

  • Pet food
  • Seed (Grasses, Bird Feed, etc.)
  • Animal Feed
  • Fertilizers (both with SOM & Block Bottom Pasted Valve Bags)

Co-Extruded woven bags are a technology where a printed film is laminated to a woven fabric and then manufactured into a bag.

Co-Extruded Woven Bag Options:

  • Paper laminated to PP woven
  • OPP laminated to PP woven
  • BOPP laminated to PP woven
  • PE laminated to PE woven
  • Clay coated paper laminated to PP woven
  • 3-layer compound: PP, Paper & BOPP


Advantages of BOPP Bags:

  • High tensile strength
  • Very high quality printing that cannot be scratched off
  • Competitively priced to Clay coated bags
  • Enhanced marketability of the product – especially important when competing for shelf space
  • High gloss surface image that can be wiped off easily
  • Fewer layers, reducing weight and freight costs
  • A clear window effect can be achieved by using clear woven tape and eliminating print area in either the front, back, or gussets
  • Waterproof material (sewing seam not waterproof)
  • Ability to print “scanable” UPC codes
