PETG Shrink Film

PETG shrink film is a new innovation that is gaining popularity in the packaging industry. The new material is recyclable and has many benefits. It has higher gloss and optical clarity, is highly scuff-resistant and can be used for various container shapes and labels. It can be used to replace PVC shrink film for various packaging applications.

The material is made from PETG and a PETG antitack agent. Its heat-shrinkable properties make it ideal for packaging applications that require a high degree of flexibility and recyclability. PETG shrink film is suitable for a variety of shapes and containers, including containers with rounded or wavy edges. It is also easy to work with, offers a matte look, is reversible and can be surface printed without special pretreatment.

PETG shrink film comes in different grades. Some are heat-shrinkable, while others can be cooled. The Bonpet 8V heat-shrinkable film offers a gradual shrinkage curve that may be more suitable for certain container geometries that have wrinkling issues. PETG shrink film can be made in several ways, and one option is to apply an anti-static coating to the outside surface of the packaging.

PETG shrink film has some advantages over PVC, and is a greener choice than PVC. However, it is not a perfect substitute for PVC. PETG shrink film requires additional investment and is not as rigid as PVC. Also, PETG shrink film is expensive to make, and only a few bigger film manufacturers produce it.

PETG shrink film is available in various grades, including recyclable and odor barrier films. The film can be custom finished, and is durable. It also provides a high melting point. Furthermore, it is recyclable and sustainable. It can be used for a wide variety of packaging applications. It is best to consult a packaging supplier when choosing a shrink film for your application.

Compared to PETG shrink film, OPS shrink film has a lower vertical shrink and a more consistent finish. PETG shrink film is typically used for squeezed containers and bottles. There are also several biodegradable thermoplastics available, such as PLA, which is made from renewable resources. However, they are more expensive and difficult to work with. They are also brittle.

When selecting shrink film, look for its properties and price. There are several important factors to consider, including the type of film, the shrink temperature range, and its toughness. Whether you need toughness, flexibility, or a certain level of protection, shrink wrap film will help you protect your products and minimize their impact on the environment.
