BOPP Film (Biaxially Oriented Polypropylene Film)
BOPP film is one of 4 key pillars in Scientex’s consumer packaging thrust, complementing CPP, PE and PU adhesives substrates for product wrapping needs.
The BOPP segment came into the Scientex’s custom films division via acquisition of Seacera Polyfilms Sdn Bhd in 2014 along with its annual production capacity of 6,000 MT. Subsequent to the purchase, Scientex formed a strategic alliance with Futamura Chemical Co., Ltd (Futamura), a leading producer of BOPP film and other film products in Japan. Futamura’s equity participation was forged in September the same year.
Capacity expansion followed in August 2016 with a 10 fold increase in BOPP plant output to 60,000 MT per annum. The purpose built state-of-the-art facility was constructed on a 12 acres piece of land at the Selangor Halal Hub in Pulau Indah, Selangor. Two high capacity BOPP lines are installed comprising Japan Steel Works customised film stretching plant in combination with high speed J Kampf slitter. Automation in manufacturing was embraced throughout the factory floor for safe and efficient handling up to final packing and delivery.
The new BOPP plant was designed and engineered from the onset based on the premise of JAPAN QUALITY, SOUTH EAST ASIAN COST. This guiding principle has resulted in an ultra-modern, highly efficient, JIT infused and SAP enabled ERP factory for maximum deliverance of high quality at competitive costs.
Also, as a prerequisite to the Japan market, the BOPP lines are placed in multi-partitioned GMP pressurised compartments with web inspection cameras at appropriate monitoring points.
