Biaxially Shrink Film

What is a Biaxially Shrink Film?

Biaxially oriented polypropylene (BOPP) film is a type of flexible packaging film that is not heated and shrunk in a heat tunnel. In recent years, it has also been used in the production of LDPE film, which is the most cost-effective packaging alternative. It is an expensive and difficult manufacturing technology. Yet, when compared to other film manufacturing procedures, biaxially shrink film has superior mechanical performance properties and several critical properties such as tensile strength, toughness, heat stability, tear initiation resistance, and barrier. For BOPP films, a significant amount of shrinkage is required at relatively low temperatures compared to other films.

How to Produce a Shrink Film?

Shrink film is manufactured in co-extruder machines utilizing low density polyethylene raw material in single or multi-layer configurations. Low Density Polyethylene Raw Materials that have been melted and thickened by the use of high heat PE Shrink Roll Film are created by altering the sizes and thicknesses using molds found in filmco-extruder machines.

After the customer acquires other desired features (printing, punching, laminating, etc.) and the produced films are approved for use by the quality control department, they are taken to the cool air storage room and rested where they are ready to be shipped.

These usable shrink films are re-heated at shrink machines placed in ordering companies, and it is ensured that the products to be packed are tightly grabbed and gripped so that the products are squeezed and protected from external causes.
