Polyolefin Shrink Film

Polyolefin shrink film gives outstanding results on manual and automatic high-speed machines. It's high transparency gives excellent exposure of the packed product making it an ideal solution for introductory and promotional packages. Besides the extra optical features, polyolefin film gives high yield that reduces the packing costs, keeping the end product price-competitive.

Environmental benefits remain important – polyolefin film is easily recycled and no harmful vapors are emitted during heat sealing.

Its technical parameters mean that it can be used on both manually operated and fully automated machines. There is no machine corrosion which extends machine life and results in lower maintenance costs. These advantages make the polyolefin film a good alternative to PVC film.

  • Environmentally friendly – easily recyclable

  • Lower cost per foot than PVC

  • It doesn’t become brittle and yellow with age

  • It’s more pliable than PVC film and does not tear easily

  • As a multi layer film the finished packs are very strong and presentable

  • It’s puncture resistant and tough

  • It gives better results where clarity and shelf life are important considerations

  • It gives better results when bundling multiple products

  • It’s approved for direct food contact

  • It doesn’t break down during the heat-sealing phase of packaging

  • It’s clean to use – less machine maintenance and a cleaner, higher quality overall appearance

  • No need to use Teflon curtaining over sealing wires

  • No smell or smoke when sealing – fine for use indoors

  • Most shrink wrap machines are capable of using both PVC and Polyolefin film. The heat required to shrink both types of film is about the same – so swapping to Polyolefin is easy.
