Avery Dennison: UV-blocking shrink film

Avery Dennison launches Pentalabel Eklipse opaque shrink film designed to block nearly 100% percent of UV light. It is available in glossy and matte varnishes.

The EklipseTM film is produced by Germany-based Klöckner Pentaplast.

The film is ideal for many opportunities in the ready-to-drink category, which has experienced 3.9% annual growth according to a 2017 report by World Tea News. It also has potential applications in areas such as functional beverages, organic products, health and beauty, and products in hot air tunnels.

Consumers of these products often want to know that the packaging is doing all it can to keep the product fresh. Eklipse film helps converters respond to that challenge. Third-party testing has shown that the product is as effective at blocking UV as heavy, HDPE plastic bottles.

The film works with highly-recyclable PET bottles and is easy to convert. There’s no need for additional flood coat printing to create the light barrier, reducing processing time and maintenance costs.
