A selection of cast film produced with homopolymer and copolymer polypropylene, including performance grades with superior cold temperature resistance, plus low temperature heat sealability. The film is enhanced for impact resistance and heat-seal strength, making it suitable for retort pouch applications and as a lamination sealant material. Plastic Films, HDPE and Thermoset Plastics are now an accepted part of the industrial and domestic scenes but this growth has been comparatively recent. Plastic films are typically used for sealing food items in containers to keep them fresh over a longer period of time. Plastic wrap, typically sold on rolls in boxes with a cutting edge, clings to many smooth surfaces and can thus remain tight. Anisotropy is the difference in the microstructure or mechanical properties of materials in different directions. Anisotropic behavior occurs in rolled sheets, and this anisotropy is very obvious in laminated composites. In this work, the influence of anisotropy on the microstructure and mechanical properties of Ti/Al laminated composites fabricated by rolling was investigated.

(SeeFig). Natural fibre reinforced plant structures are widely used in nature. These plant structures combine light weight with superior mechanical properties. The fibre orientations in plants are optimized to the occurring forces, especially to the bending of plants by wind forces. Therefore it is important to study the effect of fibre orientation to the mechanical properties of materials in a. Chen, M, Wang, Y, Wang, L, Yin, S ().

Automotive Applications: Polypropylene is widely used in automotive parts because of its low cost, weldability, and mechanical properties. It can mostly be found in battery cases and trays, bumpers, fender liners, interior trim, instrumental panels and door trims. Polyethylene, light, versatile synthetic resin made from the polymerization of ethylene. Polyethylene is a member of the important family of polyolefin resins. It is the most widely used plastic in the world, being made into products ranging from clear food wrap and shopping bags to detergent bottles and fuel tanks. This paper investigated stamp forming performance of two aluminum-based Fiber-metal laminates (FMLs) with different fiber-reinforced composites using finite element analysis. Given the inherent thermal-dependent properties of fiber-reinforced polypropylene, the effect of elevated temperature on its forming behavior is worthy of concern. Some properties, such as toughness, stiffness and “body” are not well understood once the films have been laminated to oriented substrates, primarily polypropylene (OPP) or oriented polyester (PET). Oriented substrates, such as OPP and PET, demonstrate orders of magnitude increases in stiffness over typical blown PE-based films.

The present invention relates to a thermal laminating film comprising: a base layer of biaxially oriented polypropylene (BOPP) film and a thermal laminating layer disposed on the outer surface of the base layer, wherein the said thermal laminating layer comprises % by weight of an ethylene vinyl acetate copolymer containing from 10% to 30% by weight of vinyl acetate units and having melt.

Polypropylene or PP is a thermoplastic of high clarity, high gloss and good tensile strength. It has a higher melting point than PE, which makes it suitable for applications that require sterilization at high temperatures. The two most important types are cast unoriented polypropylene (CPP) and biaxially oriented polypropylene (BOPP).

The effect of heat sealing temperature on the mechanical properties and morphology of OPP/CPP laminate films was investigated. The laminated films were placed in an impulse type heat sealing machine with both CPP sides facing each other.

The temperatures investigated ranged from to. OPP, oriented-polypropylene, films are a material with unique strength, thinness, density confirmation transparency, and gloss.

It also has excellent moisture proof properties which allows for clear printing using normal inks. This can be used in packaging food, textile products, pharmaceuticals, and miscellaneous goods. Glass fibers (GF) are the reinforcement agent most used in polypropylene (PP) based composites, as they have good balance between properties and costs.

However, their final properties are mainly determined by the strength and stability of the polymer-fiber interphase.

Fibers do not act as an effective reinforcing material when the adhesion is weak.PET possesses excellent high‐temperature properties, high strength and clarity, and has high oxygen and carbon dioxide barrier properties. Often used for medical application pouches, boil‐in‐bag applications, meat, snack, and baked goods, PET is an important player in the field of flexible packaging.
