Sealed Air Adds Layer of Performance and Sustainability to Shrink Films
Sealed Air has unveiled the latest expansion in its next-generation line of micro-layered cryovac technology films. The new CT films offer thinner gauge options than conventional polyolefin or polyvinyl chloride overwraps, enabling users to reduce their carbon footprint and overall operating costs. The newest additions to the Sealed Air CT film offering are said to better accommodate applications that require thicker films, while maintaining a potential source reduction of up to 50 percent compared to traditional polyolefins, and up to 60 percent or more compared to PVC films. The film’s reduced mass also allows it to shrink in given applications at lower tunnel temperatures, resulting in a solution that conserves energy and reduces overall carbon footprint throughout production and distribution. All film variations provide longer rolls than those typically found on conventional polyolefin and PVC materials, resulting in fewer changeovers and increased throughput, the company says. The CT films also provide improved clarity and optics to maximize presentation for retail.
