BOP®

Amcor Flexibles SPS invented the first 100% peel-off pouch in 1996. Since then, BOP® pouches and reels have become the most popular preformed Sterile Barrier Systems (NF EN ISO 11607-1) in the world, used in more than 85 countries.

amcor 1Amcor Flexibles SPS has always aimed to offer quality levels in accordance with the continuously rising standards in hospital sterilisation.

BOP® offers users an effective microbial barrier while guaranteeing the effective flow of the sterilising agent and a peel-off system which provides aseptic conditions on opening. Through medical paper specially developed to meet the requirements of steam sterilisation,

BOP® has a 60 g/m2 paper surface which is performance-equivalent in terms of resistance and barrier to 70g/m2 paper. Apart from the ecological aspect concerning the volume of waste to be treated, the reinforced 60g/m2 paper, combined with tear-proof “shatterless” film, offers flexible packaging and easy opening that are incomparable for this type of packaging.

This design completely changed traditional packaging methods (paper bags) and offered users aseptic conditions on opening which until then had been imperfect.

Amcor Flexibles SPS works with the best paper manufacturers in the sector and submits all papers and “barrier” material to stringent quality tests, endorsed by international standards such as ISO, EN and BS.
