Press ReleasesNippon Paper Industries to Launch "NEW Heat-Resistant One Wrap®" that Adheres Fast to Dishes

Nippon Paper Industries Co., Ltd.

Nippon Paper Industries Co., Ltd. (President; Yoshio Haga) announces that on August 1 it will launch a new product, "NEW Heat-Resistant One Wrap®," a wrapping film for household use featuring a five-layered structure, heat resistance, and further improved adhesiveness.

"Heat-Resistant One Wrap®" from Nippon Paper Industries is a five-layered film that combines polyethylene, polypropylene, and other components. It is a wrapping film for household use that is heat resistant up to 150 degrees centigrade, which was selected in the assumption that it would be used in microwave ovens. This product has been used widely in households since its launch in 2003.
Recently, efficient food preparation methods using microwave ovens have been increasing in popularity, and opportunities to sit at the table with the family at home have been re-evaluated. Given this trend, Nippon Paper Industries has improved the adhesiveness of its wrapping film by changing the composition of the adhesive compounds while taking advantage of the properties of polyethylene and polypropylene, which are environmentally friendly materials used for the existing product. As a result, the company has successfully developed a user-friendly wrapping film that does not tear easily and adheres fast to dishes and other items while maintaining heat resistance (up to 150 degrees centigrade).
