Plastic Suppliers: Heat-stable shrink label film

Plastic Suppliers’ Polyflex transverse direction orientated (TDO), heat-stable oriented polystyrene shrink (OPS) label film for shrink label converters features less than 0.4% shrinkage at 95 degrees F for 24 hours, and offers virtually the same shrink curves and machine direction (MD) growth as PETG-based shrink film.

This helps make it an even more attractive alternative, since existing OPS already adds a more than 25% increase in yield over PETG.

In addition to high shrink, the new film has an MD growth of 3&, eliminating the shrink wrinkles, smiles, and frowns prevalent in the base and neck areas of many bottles and cups.

Polyflex OPS shrink label film also delivers: printability across all printing processes using both water- and solvent-based ink systems; a soft feel for the consumer; and lower shrink force versus PVC and PETG, which further prevents bottle and label distortion after application.

The new product is available in 50ÎĽ, 45ÎĽ and 40ÎĽ thicknesses and low, medium, and high shrink formats.
