What is PVC shrink film?


PVC, which stands for Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) is a commonly produced and used plastic material in the packaging industry that has been around for years.


PVC shrink film is a high density film that shrinks at wide temperature ranges, and is the easiest film to control in the shrink process.


PVC shrink film has outstanding shrinkage rates, gloss, clarity, printing quality and high shrink ratio. This easy to use shrink film is also well known for its durability and low cost.


All of which makes PVC shrink film the third most produced plastic in the world.
