PRODUCT HEAT SHRINK

PRODUCT HEAT SHRINK

Product Heat Shrink is a great way of packaging smaller items. It offersprofessional presentation, fast wrapping, and a tamper evident solution.

PVC Film:

  • Lower cost option
  • Traditional Product Heat Shrink Film, but being overtaken by the newer Polyolefin Films
  • Greater environmental impact than Polyolefin
  • Has a slight odour- should not be used for food packaging
  • More brittle than Polyolefin (makes it easier to open, but not as strong)

Polyolefin Film:

  • Better clarity than PVC
  • Higher stretch levels, making it a stronger wrap compared to PVC
  • Can typically use a thinner film for the same strength compared to PVC- allowing for longer rolls & reduced plastic wastage
  • Suitable for food packaging
