Polyethylene is the mostly used material for shrink film applications. LDPE (low density polyethylene) is the widely consumed type of material for secondary and tertiary packaging due to its advantages and specific properties. Potential applications for collation shrink film include bundle-packaging of beverages (such as water, soft drinks and sport drinks), baby food, food cans and non-food bottles including shampoos, liquid soaps and personal care items.
SABIC has developed few medium density LDPE grades that typically exhibits good melt strength with good draw down ability. Films typically exhibit good toughness and good biaxial shrink properties as well as good sealing characteristics and machinability on conversion lines.
SABIC SOLUTIONS FOR Shrink Film PACKAGING POTENTIALLY OFFERS:
- High holding force
- Fast packaging speeds
- High tensile strength and good impact resistance
- Good tear resistance
