Embrace High Yield shrink film, now available in North America, is recommended for light-sensitive products, including dairy and beverages, because of its intrinsic UV-blocking capabilities. In a white opaque micro-voided film, it can have a specific gravity below 1 g/cc—a density property facilitating label separation in the PET recycling stream. Attributes reportedly include soft hand and low noise quality for greater shelf appeal.
