Cryovac GT-1 shrink-sleeve label substrate is a hybrid film that uses multi-layer polymer technology to enhance packaging performance and sustainability in a range of shrink-sleeve applications. The formulation incorporates polymers in a combination that reportedly delivers the same benefits of a monolayer film, such as consistent printing quality, reverse printing capability and high transverse direction shrink without label brittleness, fracturing, smiles or scuffing. The product features early shrink initiation and overall high shrink for a tight, secure fit even in challenging applications, according to the company.
