Klöckner Pentaplast Offers New Shrink Label Film

MONTABAUR, GERMANY/GORDONSVILLE, VA | Klöckner Pentaplast will highlight the company’s newest shrink label film, Pentalabel ClearFloat, at the AWA International Sleeve Label Conference, March 3–4 in Denver, CO.

Company says these high-performing, floatable films satisfy the growing market need for films that meet the standards set by the recycling community, while providing the clarity, processability and durability required of today’s consumer labels. Film meets the Design for Recycling Guidelines as set by the Assn. of Postconsumer Plastics Recyclers (APR), providing a higher yield of PET container recycling. Reportedly, it is engineered to offer high shrink percentages for optimal design freedom and visual impact.

“We strive to help improve the efficiencies of the recycling process while maintaining the highest levels of brand presence and consumer impact,” says Bob Schantz, Label Films Director/Americas. “Meeting these marketing and performance requirements and addressing the clarity of the label affords brand owners an opportunity to meet multiple variables in the decision making equation.”

The ClearFloat technology is called ideal for new or redesigned packaging, including that with highly contoured shapes. Applications include consumer packaged goods using PET bottle for beverage, dairy, food, Health and Beauty, Home and Garden, and Household. In addition, the technology includes the capability of using ink adhesion that passes APR label protocol with gravure, flexographic, digital, and rotary offset printing processes.
