PVC THERMOSHRINK FILMS
PVC packaging films
Used for packing products manufactured by customers representing numerous industries, including mainly confectionery and baking, poultry sector, chocolate manufacturers, cosmetic and chemical industry, paper and polygraphic sector, manufacturers of plastic products (including toys), as well as companies providing packaging and logistics services, and hypermarkets.The packaging is made by means of thermoshrinking performed with the use of appropriate packaging machines.

The wrapping is performed by way of heat-shrinking with the use of proper packaging equipment. Given its very good shrinking capabilities at a relatively low temperature (80–120°C), as well as its thinness, heat-shrinkable PVC film is used mainly for packaging low weight and size products such as promotional packages, puzzle games, board games, cosmetics, personal hygiene articles, CDs, audiotapes and videotapes, books, office supplies, photo albums, plastic goods, as well as chocolate and cookie boxes and bread.
PVC film packaging is an effective protection against dirt and damage, and makes the products look nicer. It is non-toxic and may be recycled. PVC waste may be burnt and the calorific value of this waste is comparable to that of a coal mine (approximately 4,500 kcal/kg). Thickness of the film is from 15 to 40 microns, width – from 200 to 1200 mm, with crosswise and longwise shrink – up to 45%. The heat-shrinkable PVC film has a safety certificate issued by the Central Authority of Monitoring Packaging Development (Centralny Ośrodek Badania Rozwoju Opakowań, COBRO), allowing contact with food.
