|Publication Date:||10 July 1999|
|ICS Code (Films and sheets):||83.140.10|
1.1 This specification covers oriented polypropylene (OPP) film in the thickness range from 10 to 75 [mu]m (0.4 to 3.0 mils).
1.2 The film may contain colorants, stabilizers, or other additives, and may be coated for the improvement of performance properties (heat sealability, gas permeability, etc.).
1.3 The film may be annealed (heat-set) to reduce the unrestrained linear shrinkage and shrink tension on exposure to heat.
1.4 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
1.5 The following safety hazards caveat pertains only to the test methods portion, Section 7, of this specification: This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
