Shrink film

Now available is a cross-linked, soft shrink film, Bolphane® BRX. The co. says the multilayer polyolefin combines low shrink force with a high amount of free shrink, resulting in a structure that's soft enough to wrap packages that distort easily, but tough enough to handle irregularly shaped items. Suggested applications include wraps for thin-gauge, printed items, trays and lightweight boxes that are shrink-wrapped and contain products susceptible to high temperatures. The co. cites the film's impact-resistance and ability to form strong, secure seals.
