In conjunction with partner Alfatherm S.p.A. of Italy, the co. announces a threefold increase in capacity for North America and Europe on a manufacturing line that it says can produce PVC film for shrink-sleeve labels and TE bands. With full production that began in the last quarter of 2006, the new film line's integrated calendaring process and stretching unit are cited, said to provide noteworthy benefits in terms of film quality, including superior gauge control, planarity and roll profile, yielding film with up to 66-percent higher controlled shrink rates and a higher shrink-initiation temperature, which can eliminate the need for refrigerated storage and trucking.
