Therefore, even the following cate-gories of film are themselves made up of many diverse types of film. Food Packaging Food packaging film is used in such things as in-store bags for produce (such as apples and potatoes); all nonfrozen baked goods (such as rolls and breads).

Plastic films are mostly used in packaging applications but as will be seen from this book they are also used in the agricultural, medical and engineering fields. The plastics films industry uses state-of-the-art manufacturing processes and is continuously seeking out new technologies to improve its performance.

The main forms of flexible Plastic films for packaging book packaging are bags, wraps, pouches and sachets, air pillows and envelopes, labels and sleeves, straps, tapes and six-pack rings, net bags, and woven bags.

The majority of oriented plastic films are biaxially oriented, the characteristics of which ideally meet the demands on modern flexible packaging. The biaxial orientation results in a significant increase in the mechanical properties such as Young's modulus and tensile strength, a considerable improvement in the optical properties such as haze.

Plastic wrap, typically sold on rolls in boxes with a cutting edge, clings to many smooth surfaces and can thus remain tight over the opening of a container without adhesive or other devices. The past several years have seen numerous plastic films developed for the packaging industry, the most used today being polyethylene.

Thicker plastic material is often called a "sheet". These thin plastic membranes are used to separate areas or volumes, to hold items, to act as barriers, or as printable surfaces. Plastic films are used in a wide variety of applications.

These include: packaging, plastic bags, labels, building construction, landscaping, electrical. Plastic packaging materials have been widely used as moldings, thermoforms, films, label stocks, closures, and coatings.

The selection of plastic packaging materials depends on the packaging requirements of mechanical, thermal, barrier, and optical properties, as well as the targeted shelf-life length and the cost.
