Gilbreth: Light-blocking opaque PETG-HY shrink film from Gilbreth
High performance, light-blocking opaque PETG-HY shrink film labels from Gilbreth block up to 99% of visible and UV light to safeguard and extend product shelf-life, efficacy and nutritional value.
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.
Decorative, promotional and brand-reinforcing 360˚ color graphics are surface-printed and can be protected with an overprint varnish layer.
Strong, lightweight PETG-HY film shrinks up to 76%. The excellent shrink characteristic permits material downgauging–with the potential to reduce material consumption by up to 20%. In addition, film growth in machine direction saves on film use—further reducing raw material usage and cost.
No-smiling, no-frowning PETG-HY film, with its outstanding strength and stretch characteristics presents an excellent form-fitting solution for decorating non-standard bottles that feature wide shoulders, narrow waists, angular edges, multiple planes and other challenging profiles and dimensions.
