MDO - Improved Film Properties for Mono and Barrier Films
MDO (Machine Direction Orientation) is a proven technology which saves resources, improves film properties,and optimizes films for specific uses.
With MDO from W&H, both cast and blown films can be stretched monoaxially on- or offline. The process improves barrier properties and gives mono and coextruded films enhanced tensile strength and stiffness, better shrink properties, and increased gloss and transparency.
The improved performance of MDO films translates into significant savings with reduced use of expensive raw materials, especially for barrier films. At the end of the day, less material is used, which is good for both the environment and your bottom line.
