The most popular and increasingly widespread, with the possibility of using materials from 20 microns upwards
Elastic stretch sleeves
Less known but very interesting due to their characteristics of eco-compatibility, low cost and low enery consumption made of LDPE 30 micron upwards.
The latest developments on materials have led to new sleeves with high elasticity values (around 50%), making it possible to apply stretch sleeves even on containers with contour profiles, which up til now could only be made with shrink sleeves.
The applications are:
of various types of containers (bottles, canisters, cans, kegs, crates, pots) with shrink and/or stretch
The sleeves, both shrink and stretch, are also used to make multipacks
Shrink sleeves are also used as tamper evident seals for caps
