BOPP is known as the Queen of Packaging in the plastic film world, and has a significant presence within the plastic flexible packaging industry. From the late 70’s to the present, the categories of BOPP have also been enriched, adding color to the plastic world.
BOPP product classification in accordance with the different uses of the first divided into light film, matte film, pearlescent film, aluminized film, laser film,etc.

BOPP light film features and uses

Light film, or BOPP ordinary film, is the most common type of BOPP product. BOPP light film is known for its excellent moisture barrier properties, good optical clarity, and resistance to punctures and tears. It is often used for packaging applications where transparency, durability, and moisture resistance are important, such as food packaging, labeling, and wrapping materials.


  1. Originally has the property of waterproof;
  2. Makes the surface of the label become bright;
  3. Can protect the printed content.

1. Printing articles;

  1. Packaging of food and articles.

BOPP Matte film features and uses

Matte film achieves a matte effect mainly through light absorption and scattering. It typically enhances the appearance of printing but comes at a higher price.


  1. It can make the laminating film show matte effect;
  2. Relatively high price;
  3. No heat sealing layer.

BOPP pearlescent film characteristics and uses

Pearl film is primarily a 3-layer co-extruded stretch film, often with a heat sealing layer on the surface. it is often combined with other films for packaging food and daily necessities like ice cream, chocolate, and beverage bottles.


  1. The surface generally has a heat sealing layer;
  2. Density mostly below 0.7;
  3. Showing white, translucent pearlescent effect;
  4. Has a certain light-blocking ability.

BOPP aluminized film characteristics and uses

Aluminized film is a composite flexible packaging material made by coating a thin layer of metallic aluminum onto plastic film through a special process, with vacuum aluminizing being the most common method. This gives the plastic film a metallic sheen. Combining the properties of plastic and metal, it’s an affordable, attractive, and high-performance packaging material. It’s mainly used for packaging dry and puffed foods like cookies, as well as some pharmaceuticals and cosmetics.


  1. The surface of the film has a very thin layer of metallic aluminum;
  2. The surface has a metallic luster;
  3. It is a kind of cheap and beautiful, excellent performance and practical composite flexible packaging material.


  1. Dry and puffed food packaging such as cookies;
  2. Pharmaceutical, cosmetic packaging.

BOPP laser film characteristics and uses

Laser film: the use of computer dot-matrix lithography, 3D true-color holography, multiple and dynamic imaging and other technologies by the rainbow dynamic, three-dimensional holographic effect of the hologram transferred to the BOPP film, resistant to ink erosion, high water vapor barrier capacity, can be better anti-static. generally used for high-end commodity anti-counterfeiting, decorative packaging, such as cigarettes, drugs, food and other packaging boxes.

  1. Resistant to ink erosion, high water vapor barrier capacity;
  2. Better anti-static ability.

1. Anti-counterfeiting packaging for high-end goods;

  1. Cigarettes, drugs, food and other packaging boxes.

BOPP Advantage and Weaknesses

Advantage: BOPP film is colorless, odorless, non-toxic, and has the advantages of high tensile strength, impact strength, rigidity, toughness and good transparency, etc. BOPP film needs to be corona-treated before coating or printing. After corona treatment, BOPP film has good printing adaptability, can be color printing and get exquisite appearance effect, and thus commonly used as the surface layer of composite film materials.

Insufficient:BOPP film also has shortcomings, such as easy to accumulate static electricity, heat sealing performance is poor.
In addition, the initiating tear strength of BOPP film is improved after stretching, but the secondary tear strength is very low, therefore, BOPP film can not be left on both sides of the face of any cut, otherwise BOPP film in printing, laminating is easy to tear.
