  • Patent number: 4965108
    Abstract: Thermoplastic films and bag structures having improved low temperature impact and puncture resistance properties and high resistance to heat comprise a film layer comprising a blend of polypropylene copolymer and a material selected from polyisobutylene, very low density polyethylene, polybutylene, and ethylene-methyl acrylate copolymer, and mixtures thereof. The films and bag structures preferably have an outer film layer of a resin material having a melt temperature which is higher than that of the other film layer. The outer film layer material is preferably a polyester or a polyamide. The films and bag structures are particularly suitable for use as frozen food storage containers and for subsequent heating and/or cooking of food therein.
