What is "BOPP" ?

Updated 8 months ago by Alexis Underwood

BOPP is a term commonly used in roll label production

BOPP stands for biaxially-oriented polypropylene. Polypropylene a thermoplastic polymer, alternately known as polypropene. It is very popular in roll label print production since it has an ideal printing surface. BOPP is essentially polypropylene that’s stretched flat. BOPP is oriented with a system that stretches it in two directions. This is where the “biaxially-oriented (BO)” part of BOPP comes from.

BOPP is oil and water resistant but we only recommended it for indoor use.
