This recyclable resin is also said to provide a 20% to 30% higher yield advantage than other shrink sleeve label materials permitting more labels to be produced per lb of resin. With proper surface treatment films made with RK54 SBC are well suited to flexo- or gravure-printing with solvent-based inks.
