BOPP Polypropylene Bags

Polypropylene is one of the most widely used plastics in everyday life due to its light weight and resistance to high temperatures or contact with chemical products. However, unlike polyethylene, polypropylene bags offer better flexibility, which makes them the perfect choice when we want to store heavier or denser products in them.

However, despite their lower flexibility, BOPP polypropylene bags are significantly lighter and provide a more dense plastic feel. In addition, they are easy to color and mold, which makes them truly special for sectors or businesses where every product stored must be marked. Because of all these characteristics, BOPP polypropylene bags have been gaining popularity and becoming an indispensable element in many companies.

BOPP: Characteristics and properties

BOPP, also known as Bioriented Polypropylene, is a material that offers very good mechanical, optical and protective properties as it is highly resistant to shocks, perforations and breakage. 

As for its characteristics, it offers a high degree of transparency and brightness, it is innocuous and, therefore, does not transmit taste or odor. Therefore, BOPP is a material that can be used in different processes characteristic of the food industry. 

It also stands out for its thickness (from 12 to 60 microns) and its biaxial orientation, a characteristic that makes it more resistant to traction, rigidity and clarity. In addition, it is a material that is easy to handle, since it has a low density of approximately 0.90 g/m2. Moreover, it offers excellent barrier properties against moisture, oxygen, contamination and even harmful chemicals.

It should be noted that BOPP has a relatively low carbon footprint compared to other plastic materials such as polyester.
