What is OPS Shrink Film?


OPS Shrink film or Oriented Polystyrene (OPS) shrink film is made by blending commodity styrene resins with specialized additives.


OPS shrink film is more cost competitive than PET, and features the lowest vertical shrink, accounting to the consistent finish in packaging.


Another advantage of the OPS shrink film is the gentle sloping shrink curve that it has, allowing smoother transition into contoured shapes.


The OPS shrink film is perceived to be environmentally friendly without giving off any odor or noxious gas and has excellent transparency, gloss and sparkle.


This makes OPS shrink film the current dominant shrink film choice in Japan and continues to grow in acceptance across Europe.
