P3 Polyolefin Shrink Wrapping Film
Darnel P3 Polyolefin Shrink Wrapping Film Makes A Great Value General Purpose Polyoefin Heat Shrink Wrap Film
P3 Polyolefin Shrink Wrapping Rolls From Darnel For Heat Shrink Wrapping Machinery
Our Darnel P3 Polyolefin shrink wrapping films give excellent clarity with great performance and also offers high tensile strength with good tear resistance. Polyolefin does require a little more heat to shrink but is still a good choice of shrink wrapping film for Chamber Shrink wrappers (like the Minipack RP and FC range), L Sealers (Like our Media or Modular range) and would be the preferred film for newer equipment and also fully automatic l sealing machinery. There are many advantages that polyolefin has over PVC shrink wrapping films, the main ones being Polyolefin produces a stronger seal in comparison with PVC and will not go brittle and split if left in a cold environment after sealing and shrinking. During the heat sealing process polyolefin shrink wrapping film will not produce as much debris meaning less cleaning is required of the heat sealing blade leading to a much reduced downtime and also lower engineering costs. With polyolefin producing less fumes during the sealing process when compared to a PVC film, it is seen as more friendly towards both operator and the environment as it is also fully recyclable
When you purchase any new packaging machinery from us for shrink wrapping or heat sealing, we would always recommend that you explore the options of moving onto a polyolefin shrink film as the benefits of polyolefin far out way the possible extra costs involved with switching from a PVC shrink wrapping film.. When costing the switch from polyolefin to PVC it is also very important to take into consideration the extra length per roll and also to explore the possibility of reducing the film gauge as this can mean less roll changes again saving man hours and increasing productivity.
All our Polyolefin or PVC shrink wrap is centre folded on the roll, so if you purchase a 350 mm wide roll it is actually 700 mm wide unfolded. As a general rule when working out the size of the shrink film required, we use the method below and remember that a certain amount of waste film is an integral part of the shrink wrapping process no matter if the machine is a basic chamber shrink wrapping machine, a semi automatic l sealer or even a fully automatic l sealer. When it comes to film size we have a little saying " Its better to be looking at it than for it".
A = Roll Width B = Product Height C = Product Depth
A = b + c + 100mm
P3 offers great clarity and performs well on higher speed automatic shrink wrapping machines, it has higher tensile strength and greater tear resistance and will give a more robust seal around your l sealed product. Darnel polyolefin shrink films do not produce the smell or fumes when being sealed even more so on equipment that is old and tired It is also far less corrosive than a PVC and will leave less residue on the machine sealing blades.
