Cross-Linked Film

Cross-Linked Film

Our X is a multilayer, crosslinked, polyolefin shrink film. It is soft enough to wrap products that easily distort, but tough enough to package incongruous shaped items. Our X has properties that'll protect heat-sensitive products. Applications include printed and converted paper products, items packed in light weight trays and boxes, and softer products. The high shrink in our X allows the packaging of odd shaped items, and produces the best clarity and retail ready appearance.

Our X goes through a cross-linking process that increases the tensile strength and durability, while also providing durable and seamless seals as well high puncture resistance. That means wrapping packages in our X results in better protection for your product and more versatility in the application it can be used with.

  • Frequently Asked Questions

    FAQ 1: What is shrink film and how is it used?

    Shrink film is a flexible polymer material that, when heated, shrinks tightly around products, providing a secure and protective wrapping. It is widely used for packaging various items, from food and beverages to consumer goods.

    FAQ 2: What are the types of shrink films available?

    There are different types of shrink films, including polyolefin, PVC (polyvinyl chloride), and PETG (polyethylene terephthalate glycol). Each type has unique properties, such as clarity, shrinkage characteristics, and suitability for different products.

    FAQ 3: What products are suitable for shrink film packaging?

    Shrink film is versatile and can be used to package a wide range of products, such as bottles, cans, boxes, and even irregularly shaped items. It's particularly popular for bundling multiple items together.

    FAQ 4: How is shrink film applied and sealed?

    Shrink film is often applied using a heat tunnel or a heat gun. The heat causes the film to shrink and conform tightly around the product. The film can be sealed using various methods, including impulse sealers and continuous band sealers.

    FAQ 5: Does shrink film provide tamper-evident packaging?

    Yes, shrink film offers tamper-evident packaging. Once heat is applied, the film shrinks tightly around the product, making it evident if the package has been tampered with.

    FAQ 6: Can shrink film packaging be customized with branding?

    Absolutely. Shrink film can be printed with branding, logos, and product information using techniques like flexographic or digital printing. This customization enhances product visibility and promotes brand identity.

    FAQ 7: What benefits does shrink film provide for product protection?

    Shrink film provides excellent protection against dust, moisture, and physical damage. It creates a barrier that keeps products in pristine condition during transportation and storage.

    FAQ 8: Is shrink film environmentally friendly?

    Some shrink films are designed to be more environmentally friendly, using recyclable materials or reduced plastic content. When choosing shrink film, consider options that align with your sustainability goals.

    FAQ 9: Can shrink film be used for food packaging?

    Yes, shrink film is commonly used for food packaging. However, it's important to use food-grade shrink film that meets safety standards to ensure the product's quality and consumer safety.

    FAQ 10: How do I determine the right shrink film for my packaging needs?

    Selecting the right shrink film involves considering factors such as the type of product, packaging machinery, required shrinkage percentage, and branding requirements. Consulting with packaging professionals can help you make an informed decision.
