How can you optimize your shrink wrap film?
Re-sizing roll width / length
Reevaluating your shrink roll width and length can help minimize your cost per roll and decrease the amount of changeovers required with a shorter roll length.
Decrease your cost per package by down gauging your shrink wrap. Often times higher gauge films can be optimized with a high-performing shrink film.
It’s important that your wrapped product gets the right amount of air during the shrinking process. Pre-perforated shrink film will allow the air to escape more easily from the packaging being sealed quickly to make a perfect package.

Switching to a shrink film can decrease the amount of curbside waste and still meet your sustainability objectives and expectations.
