Jindal Poly Films Limited (JPFL) has announced the commissioning of the first cast polypropylene (CPP) line at its Nashik, plant, in Maharashtra.
The 5-layer CPP line from Reifenhauser has a width of 4.8 metres and an annual capacity of 15,000 tonnes year, said Jindal in a 3 March statement.
Describing it as the “the widest” and "most technologically advanced in the country”, Jindal said the production line has the capability to produce a broad range of CPP films, both for regular applications as well as speciality films for high barrier and retort applications.
According to Jindal, CPP films in India have had limited growth due to the absence of high quality films and innovative products.
The new line, said the company, will support a regular supply of “high quality and innovative films” in this segment.
