Shrink Film Packaging

Get the most out of collation shrink film packaging
 

water bottles in plastic pack

From beauty products to beverages, food cans to household items, whatever industry you’re in, the benefits of collation shrink film are numerous. Not only do they seamlessly bundle together multiple items, but their versatile branding opportunities make for fantastic shelf-life appeal. Through collaborations with progressive brand owners, we have gained decades of valuable experience which enables us to help you get the most out of collation shrink film packaging. Our resins are each designed to facilitate different packaging goals, and you can put our entire range of high performance solutions to the test at our Pack Studios locations, using 3D virtual modelling of shrink film structures and industry-scale fabrication lines. 

Across the globe, we develop solutions that integrate post-consumer recyclates (PCR) for collation shrink films while maximising performance. Get in touch to learn about the solutions available in your region.
