Cast MOPE film from COLINES: Result achieved thanks to joint efforts with DOW and COMEXI

The production of Mono Oriented PE film (MOPE) with cast technology is no longer a “utopia”: the three companies have set a new benchmark for the market, by producing a very high-level 30 micron MOPE with unique and specific mechanical and optical features.

The film was totally made with DOW PE-based resins and extruded on the latest generation of COLINES Polycast line, equipped with our patented MDO system. The film was subsequently printed with a high quality solvent-free Comexi Offset CI press, and the result is of the highest level.

“Mono oriented PE film is commonly produced with blown extrusion technology – says Nicola Lombardini, COLINES’ R&D Manager – but the extruded film has some limits. For instance, the blown MOPE film doesn’t have good haze & gloss, which is something easily achieved with cast extrusion technology. In addition, also the possibility to have one side of the film with good sealability is another enormous advantage of cast technology. Of course, this opens a huge market for cast MOPE film, since it would be able to replace some existing products like BOPET, guaranteeing both higher reciclability and extreme downgauging”.

“We have achieved something extremely innovative, and we will soon make further steps forward – says COLINES’ CEO, Anthony Michael Caprioli – thanks to our brand new Polycast R&D-line. The line is perfectly optimized for processing PE resins as well and equipped with our latest MDO unit. We have scheduled further tests with DOW and COMEXI and we are also available for running tests with our customers. Our goal is to take our customers to the “next level” of Mono Oriented PE film production”.
