Klockner introduces new light-blocking shrink label film

Klöckner Pentaplast plays an integral role in the customer value chain by marketing and protecting product integrity, safety, consumer health and, ultimately, brand reputation

Klöckner Pentaplast’s Pentalabel shrink film line has been expanded to include a new light blocking film, Pentalaqel eclipse.

This state-of-the-art product introduces maximum light blocking properties into the film process and satisfies a market need for films that are cost-effective, process efficient and improve light barrier characteristics.

Pentalabel eklipse films offer high performing shrink percentages for optimal design freedom while eliminating the need for high-barrier primary containers.

Pentalabel eklipse technology is ideal for new or redesigned packaging for food, health and beauty, home and garden, and household applications.

In addition, these new films afford a unique blend of benefits across applications such as extended shelf-life, off-taste reduction and vitamin protection (dairy products), reduced total package costs and colour protection.

'eklipse has a built-in, almost complete light block, with no need for expensive backside black printing – saving processing time and money,' comments Phil Heyworth, Group Senior Vice President, Labels.

'Pentalabel eklipse combines the highest level of whiteness for this category of barrier shrink sleeve product with superior light blocking capabilities. This innovation provides ease of processing throughout the value chain while protecting product integrity for the consumer desiring light blocking characteristics in their packaging,' adds Chris Frank, Global Marketing, Labels.
