Sealed Air introduced its Opti next generation shrink films from Millennium Packaging. The new film supplies as much as 30% more footage in the same footprint and at the same price as competitive products, yielding important cost, material use, and production advantages.

These benefits stem from patented Sealed Air 29-micro-layer technology that produces a thinner gauge with better tear resistance and better clarity than other thicker films, according to the company. The Opti NX also has a wider sealing and shrinking range than standard films.

The Opti NX family includes five all-purpose (Opti NXG) and two soft-shrink (Opt NXS) gauges. These gauges also meet the needs of including irregularly shaped products and soft items such as converted paper that are unable to withstand the shrink force of conventional all-purpose materials. The new films adapt to a wide range of shrink machinery, are recyclable, and are both FDA- and USPS-approved.
