Polyolefin film is ideal for the packing of toys, chemical and technical products, board games, books, cardboard boxes, vegetables, fruit, flowers, bakery products, cakes and confectionery.

Polyolefin film does not include any substances that will penetrate into the packed products, so it is totally safe and meets the requirements of the food industry for product packing. It is odourless and tasteless, so it has no influence on the natural taste and smell of food products. It can be used in temperatures as low as -30 degrees celsius, which makes it suitable for packaging frozen products.

Polyolefin film is also easily recycled and no harmful vapours are emitted during heat sealing. Its technical parameters prove that it can be used on both manually operated and fully automated machines. It does not cause any machine corrosion, extending machine life and resulting in lower maintenance costs. These advantages make the polyolefin film a good alternative to PVC film.
