Gilbreth: Light-blocking opaque PETG-HY shrink film from Gilbreth

Light-barrier shrink film sleeves made by Gilbreth from opaque, high performance, high-yield, light weight PETG-HY film provides up to 99% UV and visible light-blocking product protection to safeguard food, beverage, nutraceuticals, vitamin waters, supplements, wine, spirits and other light-sensitive consumer packaged products. Micro-voided PETG-HY film is a pure, light-blocking white opaque substrate. For maximum light shielding, Gilbreth applies two coats of black ink to the reverse side of the film to offer 99% protection from visible and UV light requirements, without precipitating any visible change to the crisp bright white base color on the label front.
