Crosslinked Shrink Film is an innovative flexible packaging material made of polypropylene or polyethylene that provides more durable and strong protection for products during shipping, handling, retail display, customer returns, and point-of-sale inspections than regular shrink film does. Customers also have a clear view of what they are purchasing at the point of sale to check against customer expectations versus what was on display for sale at retail points. In addition, crosslinked shrink films weigh significantly less than traditional corrugated cartons thus significantly cutting transportation, storage, and warehousing costs which often make them significant benefits - especially for small companies or businesses operating out of limited storage spaces.
Cross-linked polyolefin (POF) film offers high shrinkage at lower temperatures, making it suitable for heat-sensitive products like aerosols. Furthermore, its soft material makes it suitable for odd-shaped or soft items that don't fit easily into standard packaging solutions. Furthermore, shrink-wrapping machines make this type of packaging an effective alternative to more traditional solutions.
POF plastic film is an ideal material choice for an array of applications, including shrink bags and sleeves for food and beverage, pharmaceuticals, electronics, and automotive use. This material offers an outstanding combination of tensile strength, heat sealing performance and transparency with the capability of handling higher shrink rates at lower temperature settings - ideal for hot and cold climates alike as well as humid conditions.
These films feature increased mechanical strength and are more resistant to puncture, tear and chemical attacks than conventional film packaging solutions. Furthermore, these new film options retain their shape even after shrinkage, creating a more appealing package and protecting its contents more effectively than regular packaging materials. Moreover, repeated use makes them much less likely to sag or tear over time.
POF stands out from other films by being clear with very minimal haze, making the packaging easier for consumers to read and comprehend. Furthermore, this film can be easily cut using fully automatic machines for time and cost savings as well as needing less heat during shrinking to reduce electricity usage and carbon emissions.
POF also boasts the added advantage of producing less residue than standard film, which can damage sealing wires and blades, particularly important when producing thousands of seals daily. This reduced residue can significantly improve machine uptime and productivity.
