MDO (Machine Direction Orientation) is a post extrusion process used to enhance film properties such as resistance, optics or even rigidity.
The film is extruded then stretched several times in machine direction, which gives it a shrink index. This shrink value determines the maximum final retraction and sets during the plastic material
cooling process.

Performance Benefits:


  • Reduced thickness
  • Reduced packaging costs
  • High pressure resistance
  • Printing up to 6 colours
  • Minimal deformation
  • Impact, shock and tear resistance
  • Outstanding optical properties : gloss and transparency
  • Reduced PE consumption
  • Improved efficiency


  • Compression film
