Innovia Films produce many films that are used within the food industry to wrap a wide variety of products. So one would expect to know something about barrier properties.

Innovia Films has harnessed that knowledge to develop and launch two new high barrier films for labeling applications - UltraFoil CXFA (clear) and WXFA (white), which both have EU and FDA food contact compliance.

Alasdair McEwen, Product Manager, Labels stated “These label facestock films offer brand owners and label printers the complete package. As part of the UltraFoil product group they give superior narrow web print and foil performance. Their tailored surface allows enhanced detail for finer tone work and intricate foiling designs for maximum brand impact. They also have a high barrier coating on one side which aids product protection and the films have now been certified food contact compliant.”

Both grades are available in 53 and 61 micron thicknesses and provide high machine direction stiffness for improved conversion and high speed label dispensing.
