Our Shrink Wrap Film
We would like to stress that because we are not contractually committed to any given supplier, we are uniquely able to offer our customers the most up-to-date shrink films, not only in terms of cost, but also in terms of their environmental credentials, be they recyclability or biodegradability.
We are the UK’s largest stockholder of presentation shrink films, and with our expert advice, we can definitely help you find the best shrink film for your application. We have in depth knowledge of all types of shrink wrapping machines that are available, and can help you determine the most suitable shrink film, whether determined by pack type, speed, volume or budget.
Please see our general guide below for further information on our range of materials and supplies, as well as our guides to the two principal types of presentation shrink film, Polyolefin and PVC.
Frequently Asked Questions
Shrink film for transit is made of Polythene and is used to protect products during transit. An example would be cans, possibly in a cardboard tray, which will be wrapped to provide it with strength when being transported. On the other hand, shrink film for presentation is often used in retail for either appearance or to avoid contamination. For example, toys and pizzas use this kind of shrink film.
Our range of Polyolefin shrink films combine optics, strength, machineability and environmentally friendliness whilst maintaining a low price. Some of our custom options provide additional benefits such as anti-fog for food use or pre-perforation which offers useful benefits in production.
Our GI and DH PVC shrink wrap film ranges have been specifically engineered to offer packaging solutions across a large range of retail packaging. They are very easy to use and create attractive packaging with a neat shrink. The rolls are available in a variety of thicknesses and designs to choose from.
We try to be as environmentally cautious as possible which can often be tricky in this industry. We have designed strategies to avoid negative impact on the environment but currently a fully biodegradable presentation shrink film is yet to exist. There is still a way to go but we have worked with the OPRL (on-pack recycling label) scheme to raise awareness and guide on disposal.
