BOPP Films Division

NENV: the first S-BOPP film for window envelopes developed with a production process that cannot be replicated with any other technologies, employing a unique extrusion line (LISIM-Brückner), customized by Irplast, that guarantees reduced film thickness, lower costs and application performance equal to those of polystyrene. It has been certified by USA and European postal authorities.

Born from the vast experience of Irplast in the development of special simultaneously bi-oriented polypropylene films, NENV reduces the thickness of the plastic material used, adding to the benefits of the specific weight of BOPP film. The high level of adhesion to any paper substrate with various kinds of glue has confirmed the excellent processing of the film. More advantageous than PS, for the cost of raw materials used, according to the latest ICIS data, it is available in both glossy and matt options.
