Klockner Adds Vinyl and Shrink-Label Films Capacity


GORDONSVILLE, VA - Klockner Pentaplast of America has announced two capacity expansions at its Rural Retreat, VA, manufacturing facility. The first expansion is in its core business of rigid vinyl film calendering, expected to come online in July 2005. The second is an expansion of a tentering capacity for full body shrink-label films, expected to start in fall 2005.

These specialty shrink-label films are used primarily for various full-body sleeves, bottle capsule (cap seal), tamper-evident bands, and multi-pack applications. Most of the films are typically printed for highly decorated labels providing 360-degree graphics for food, beverage, dairy, and consumer products.
