Shrink label film

New OPTICITE™ 48 and OPTICITE 61 roll-fed shrink-label films provide greater than 40-percent shrinkage in the machine direction on highly contoured containers in hot air, infrared and combination shrink tunnels, the co. states. These new label films can enable cost effective point-of-sale differentiation, and they are suitable for use with traditional hot-melt adhesive, solvent or UV- curable adhesive, as well as with laser- and ultrasonic-seaming systems. In combination with the excellent printability and high clarity of polystyrene films, both films offer minimal cross-direction shrinkage and low shrink force to produce a finished label with crisp, smooth graphics. They can provide the eye-catching appeal of full-body contoured labels using high speed, roll-fed equipment, while reducing off-line seaming and the inspection steps typical in the production of traditional transverse-direction shrink sleeves, the co. says.
