PVC for Sleeves

At Bilcare Research, we produce an optimal selection of rigid PVC films for the manufacture of sleeves. These films are distinguished by outstanding optical properties, excellent layflat and consistent transverse shrinkage. They can be printed using flexographic, rotogravure or wet-offset processes.

Our PVC films ensure the best results for all forms of sleeves:

  • Tamper evident seals
  • Full body sleeves
  • Promotional sleeves

All shrink films are characterised by the following features:

  • Excellent surface finish
  • all PVC based films are available with optical brightener (sleeve detection)
  •  Consistent shrinkage properties
  • Outstanding processability on modern high performance machines
  • Excellent printability with flexographic, rotogravure, rotary-offset and digital printing processes
  • Superb solvent resistance
  • Low water-blush formulations ensure enhanced product finish for steam applications

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.
