    A clear film (actually a fibre) commonly used in food wrapping because it’s resistant to most acids and alkalis, and it’s see-through.

    OPP and BOPP are common specifications for Polypropylene or PP. BOPP is crystal clear, ideal for being the only wrapping on a product, such as bakery items.

    It’s also very strong, ideal for melting to seal and wrapping any shape and size of product.
    Typical specifications might show: PP 400mm 750m 25mu.

    PP = Polypropylene
    400mm = width of the film
    750m = length of the roll
    25mu = thickness of the film
