How Many Packages Per LB Can You Produce With BOPP Packaging?

This calculator will provide you with an understanding of how many pounds you need to meet your production demands when using biaxially-oriented polypropylene, or BOPP, packaging films!



Why Do I Want To Know How Many Packages Per LB I Can Create With BOPP?

Biaxially-oriented Polypropylene (BOPP) is purchased by the pound (lb). It's important for you to understand how many lbs you need to purchase at intervals that make sense to your business to keep your production running. 

This calculator will help you determine not only how many packages you can create per LB but will provide you with the square inches of BOPP required for each finished good.

It will also let you know your ideal cutoff (length of film you need per finished good)!

From here, you can determine how many lbs of BOPP to order, and connect with one of our specialists to understand pricing and lead times!

What Do I Do Next?

Get to calculating! You will need to know the following:

  • The length of your product (think of the product running down your machine, that will be the length)
  • The height of your product
  • The film thickness you are going to use (the gauge of the film)
  • Your film width

Once these are defined, you are ready to rock!
