Principle of Heat Shrink Film

Heat shrink film, used for labels, packaging, or winding film use.it is made by preheating, stretching, cooling, and shaping specific polymers like PVC, PE, PS, or PET (as long as it does not go through the heat-setting process). This process creates the film’s shrinkable properties.

Types of Heat Shrink Film

According to the different raw materials, heat shrink film can be divided into the following types:
PVC Heat Shrink Film: Most common, good shrinkability, clear, affordable (ideal for general use).
PE heat shrink film: High strength, tough, good for cold temperatures (freezer-friendly).
PET heat shrink film: Excellent barrier, high heat resistance (perfect for hot food packaging).
