    Solvent & Solvent less adhesives along with water based and extrusion lamination processes again ensure that your lamination structure is adhered correctly thus ensuring your performance specification is fit for purpose across all end user needs and environments.

  • CPP

    NOW Plastics cast polypropylene (CPP) films continue to grow in demand as converters find a number of benefits over other substrates such a polyethylene.

    CPP has better clarity, higher gloss, better heat resistance, better layflat and planarity than polyethylene.

    In recent years, as more "ready-to-eat foods" enter the market there is a growing demand for CPP especially if those products are being made through the retort process for the reason that CPP is a critical component in the structure of these laminated packages.

    Our CPP films are ISO 9000 and food contact certified.

    Our newest version of CPP provides an "easy tear" feature not normally seen with CPP films.  This special film allows converters to create retort pouches which are much more consumer friendly for opening.

    NOW Plastics has been selling CPP films to both stationery and packaging markets for 20 years.  We are able to offer converters customized formulations which tailor the film to the particular needs of the applications.
