PET for Sleeves

At Bilcare Research, we produce an optimal selection of PET-G films for sleeves up to ultra-high shrinkage. These films are distinguished by outstanding optical properties, excellent layflat and consistent transversal shrinkage. They can be printed using flexographic, rotogravure, rotary-offset and digital printing processes.

All PET-G shrink films are characterised by the following features:

  • Up to 79% TD shrinkage
  • Ideally suited for glass and thin-walled plastic containers
  • MD shrinkage behaviour provides potential material savings
  • No coating, printable on both sites
  • Excellent shrink finish control in hot air and steam tunnes
  • Uniform shrink finish even at critical areas and on demanding bottle shapes due to flat shrink characteristic
  • Lowest specific gravity for full PET-G sleeves
  • High clarity assured
  • Superb thickness distribution

Our customers consistently enjoy the shortest lead times, fastest responses and strongest customer care available – wherever you are in the world!

Sleeves can be used on a variety of products on glass, plastic and & metal containers as a tamper evident seal, promotional sleeve or multipack, for dairy products, beverages (juices, soft-, energy-, flavoured alcoholic & non alcoholic drinks), food, health & beauty, household, confectionery, and home and garden products.
