Polymer plastic film is used to create shrink wrap, commonly known as shrink film. It shrinks tightly over whatever it is covering when heat is applied. Electric or gas-powered heat guns can be used to apply heat, or the product and film can move through a heat tunnel on a conveyor.
One direction (unidirectional or mono-directional) or both directions can be used to shrink a shrinkable film (bidirectional). Warm films are stretched in order to change the molecules’ initial random pattern. When a film is cooled, its properties are fixed until it is warmed, at which point it contracts back to its original size.
Shrink wrap is placed over or around the target object, frequently using automated machinery. It is then heated using a heat gun, placed in a shrink tunnel, or placed in an oven to shrink. Over time, the shrink film family has grown, and there are now several multi-layer structures available for purchase.
Shrink, seal ability, optics, toughness, and slide are some properties of shrink film. Onset temperature, free shrink, shrink force, shrink temperature range, memory, and overall package appearance are all examples of shrink qualities.
The Global Printed shrink film market accounted for $XX Billion in 2021 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2022 to 2030.

RayoWrap CMS clear BOPP film from Innovia Films has been introduced for shrink and wraparound label applications. CMS30, which is made at the company’s UK production facility, has a high shrinkage rate that only occurs in the machine direction, making it ideal for labelling contoured dairy and beverage containers.
Because it can be easily peeled off to facilitate bottle recycling or the entire labelled container can be recycled in a polyolefin stream, this film is ideal for use on small PP or PE bottles. This aids in the finished package being totally recyclable and so following the packaging design criteria of Plastic Recyclers Europe.
For the toughest transportation and storage situations, ProAmpac’s polyethylene-based shrink film delivers excellent strength and puncture resistance. The film may easily be recycled in flexible polyethylene film streams, and it can also contain post-consumer recycled material (PCR) to cut down on the use of virgin polymers.
With a new customised version of VpCI 126 Shrink Film for automated heat seal or heat shrink tunnels, Cortec has made that prospect more likely.
Shrink VpCI-126 Heavy-duty packing of industrial assets and equipment being readied for storage or shipping is frequently done with film. To prevent corrosion on metal surfaces inside the packaging, VpCI in the film forms a protective molecular layer.
