Total has collaborated along the value chain to demonstrate an 11-layer high-performance barrier film for packaging. Using Total Lumicene PE on Hosokawa Alpine’s blown film line at the recent K show, it exhibited a barrier film that is suitable for food preservation applications. The Total resin formulation boosts the water vapour barrier and increases down-gauging potential, providing good optics and fast sealing.
