QBD will service a vast number of market segments such as household and personal care, food and beverage, and other consumer packaged goods sectors. This development also completes Innovia's range of films for all major label applications, cut and stack, roll fed wrap around, shrink and in-mold.
Low density, high yield films manufactured with less sophisticated technology often require a compromise when it comes to whiteness, opacity and stiffness. The 5-layer technology of the Innovia Films Zacapu line, results in high performance base films that still give superb economics and yield. With an opacity of 86%, QBD is better than some solid white label films, Innovia says. In addition, QBD has been engineered to be FDA-approved for food contact label applications and is compatible with PSL adhesives and printing inks.
QBD is manufactured and shipped from Innovia's Zacapu, Mexico plant in rolls of over 40,000 feet (12,500 meters) to help reduce changeover time and increase efficiencies. Our team in the Winston Salem HQ works closely with the plant and are here to support new business scale ups with quick and efficient manufacturing and shipment.
