Films for roll-fed shrink labeling
Dow Chemical’s OPTICITE™ Label Films for roll-fed shrink labels are available in two styles: OPTICITE™ 48 Roll-Fed Shrink Label Film and OPTICITE™ 61 Roll-Fed Shrink Label Film.
Both provide greater than 40% shrinkage in the machine direction on highly-contoured containers in hot air, infra-red and combination shrink tunnels. The label films are suitable for use with traditional hot melt adhesive, solvent, or ultra-violet curable adhesive as well as with laser and ultrasonic seaming systems. Films offer minimal cross-direction shrinkage and low shrink. 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.
