Easy-open feature applicator
Tearstrip's (Boyertown, PA) Peelwrap applicator applies Peelwrap pressure-sensitive material to shrink-wrapped packages to create a patented, easy-open feature.
Peelwrap is a 3/4" W p-s tape with a 1/4" dry edge used to facilitate easy opening by consumers. It's applied over a perforation in the shrink film in the machine direction. It can be mounted in the film unwind area and can be retrofitted to most wrappers including L-sealers and continuous-motion wrappers.
