Klockner Pentaplast: Expansion of Shrink-Label Film Capacity

Klockner Pentaplast of America will more than double its North American production capacity for shrink-label films. A new film tentering line for transverse-direction orientation (TDO) will be located at the company’s Rural Retreat plant. Start-up is targeted for March 2004. Shrink label films are used for full-body shrink-sleeve labels, bottle capsule (cap seal), tamper-evident bands, and multi-pack applications. These films are typically printed to provide food and consumer products with 360-degree graphics. The TDO films are currently available in PVC, PET, and Barex modified acrylonitrile polymer.
