film tuning

Expand your possibilities with monoaxial film orientation lines

MDO film orientation lines

Our MDO (Machine Direction Orientation) monoaxial film orientation lines make it possible to adapt specific film characteristics such as stiffness, shrink- and tear resistance precisely to suit your application. In comparison to non-oriented films of similar thickness, oriented films possess improved mechanical and optical properties. In the case of barrier films, the orientation process also reduces permeability to gas and water vapour.
For the user, film orientation means at the same time a tremendous potential for savings. Packaging films can therefore be manufactured which, despite a reduction in use of materials, display very similar characteristics to those of non-oriented films.
