Flex Films Launches Twist Wrap Film

DUBAI, UAE | Flex Films, the global film manufacturing arm of Uflex, reports it has has engineered FLEPET (FLEXPET F-WTG-AS.) F-WTG-AS low-opacity, good-gloss white anti-static twist wrap polyester film. This bi-axially oriented polyethylene terephthalate (BOPET) film is suited for candy and confectionery manufacturers who want packaging that imparts to the customers flavor inside and also protects the product. 

Anantshree Chaturvedi, vice chairman and CEO of Flex Films, says, “Convertors catering to candy/confectionery brands had been asking for a white glossy substrate with low opacity for imparting superior esthetics to their packaging. The daunting challenge, however, was that if you make a white opaque film, the gloss quotient goes down. Owing to our special proprietary resin formulation we have been able to engineer a white background film that is translucent (less opaque) and offers high gloss too. It is because of our special FDA-approved food-compliant antistatic coating recipe that the film exhibits excellent machinability on printing and twist wrap machines. The film can be surface printed or can be metallized. The unprinted substrate by itself can also be readily used by the brands to twist wrap their candies/ confectioneries.”

He adds, “Besides having superior handling and high mechanical properties, the film has a zero memory (i.e. excellent twist retention) and is eco-friendly. Since the density of the new substrate is less than conventional white twist wrap film, its yield is more. And since the film is a monolayer structure, it can be easily recycled.”
