New High Barrier NatureFlex™ Film Launched

Innovia Films’ next generation of its flexible, compostable film, NatureFlex™ was officially launched today (6 November 2008) at the European Bioplastics Conference in Berlin.

The new film, NatureFlex™ NK, offers not only biodegradability and compostability, but also a moisture barrier approaching that of co-extruded OPP. This means it has the best moisture barrier of any biopolymer film currently available, which has been achieved through Innovia Films’ unique coating technology.

NatureFlex™ NK is a transparent, general purpose packaging grade suitable for various applications eg dried foods (biscuits, cereals, crisps, snack bars etc). The new product is also ideal for lamination to other biofilms. NatureFlex™ NK is available in 20, 23, 30, 45 micron thicknesses and can be used for a variety of pack formats – VFFS, flow wrap, twistwrap and overwrap.
