Focus on the downgauging on the OPP industry at TFE
Toray aspires to offer the best quality to its customers and is regularly aiming to decrease the environmental impact of our films. Every day, Toray encourages the development of sustainable activities to help improve the global carbon footprint of our customers.
As an example, with a production yearly capacity of 22K tons, Torayfan films are predominantly produced in thinner gauges.
What are the downgauging advantages?
By being capable of producing lower thicknesses, TFE is offering to its customers films which are consistent in quality without compromising in performance.
A lower thickness results in higher film surface per reel, higher quantity per delivery and obviously, can help optimize warehouse space utilisation.
Additionally, lower thicknesses are produced in a more cost-effective way which results in a lower cost per sqm for its customers.
