Our films division have an extensive range of films and products to fulfil your packaging requirements.
FZ1 - General purpose
Our General purpose FZ1 film has excellent clarity with extra strength and magnificent shrink qualities. This film will maintain it's balance and shrinkage whilst traveling through the heat shrink tunnel. It's soft and flexible consistency suits both semi automatic and fully automatic shrink processes. Although this material is not a cross-linked film, with modern extrusion technologies and the use of multilayer extruders it does allow for the material to be recycled in the polyethylene recycle stream.
Zf4 and Zf6 - Cross linked
We also supply cross linked shrink films in the form of our ZF4 and ZF6 materials.
Our FZ4 material is also a cross-linked film however, it has been formulated to include anti-fog additives which makes it perfect to wrap food products with high moisture such as fruit, vegetables and meat that are displayed in the fridge for retail.
Our ZF6 is a high performance cross-linked shrink that offers a softer shrink process, it shrinks at a lower temperature to our other materials. Due to its slower shrinkage performance it is recommended for products that are irregular in size without leaving the pack with unsightly fold which we refer to as dog ears.
PVC Shrink film
Our PVC Shrink Film is a product that has been in our range since our beginning when the polyolefin films could not perform our run on smaller types shrink wrapping machines. Our PVC comes in several gauges and multitude widths. It is formulated to meet food contact standards and has exceptionally good shrink force. It has a very clear appearance and extremely glossy finish. We out sell this type of material as consumers are switching over to a far more environmentally friendly product.
