Polyolefin shrink sleeves are extremely versatile, and are the first choice when using display shrink films, as they are strong, machinable, have brilliant optics, and are extremely economically efficient. Polyolefin shrink sleeves will generally offer an excellent solution to most display shrink sleeves requirements, no matter what kind of shrink wrap machinery is used.
Polyolefin shrink sleeves have multiple layers of PE and Polypropylene (PP) and may be irradiated for extra strength. They can also be treated to include additional properties, such as hot slip or anti-fog.
Polyolefin shrink sleeves are very sophisticated and formulated to offer a wide sealing and shrinking window so that they can be readily used on manual, semi and fully automatic shrink wrapping machinery.
Characteristics of Polyolefin Shrink Sleeves
Polyolefin shrink sleeves is characterised by its high transparency, giving excellent exposure of the packed product, and by a high gloss finish that improves appearance and aids marketing success. It is an ideal solution for introductory and promotional packages. Besides its extra optical features, the polyolefin film gives high yield that reduces the packing costs, keeping the end product price-competitive.
Polyolefin shrink sleeves is thin, but has the same mechanical breaking resistance as other much thicker competitive films. Innovative crosslink technology provides durable heat sealing and gives excellent shrinkability. This is important in the case of products with irregular shape and sharp edges.
What is Polyolefin Shrink Sleeves Used for?
Polyolefin shrink sleeves is ideal for the packing of toys, chemical and technical products, board games, books, cardboard boxes, vegetables, fruit, flowers, bakery products, cakes and confectionery.
Polyolefin shrink sleeves does not include any substances that will penetrate into the packed products, so it is totally safe and meets the requirements of the food industry for product packing. It is odourless and tasteless, so it has no influence on the natural taste and smell of food products. It can be used in temperatures as low as -30 degrees celsius, which makes it suitable for packaging frozen products.
Polyolefin shrink sleeves is also easily recycled and no harmful vapours are emitted during heat sealing. Its technical parameters prove that it can be used on both manually operated and fully automated machines. It does not cause any machine corrosion, extending machine life and resulting in lower maintenance costs. These advantages make the polyolefin shrink sleeves a good alternative to PVC sleeves.
