Klöckner Pentaplast’s Pentalabel® shrink film line has been expanded to include a new light blocking film, Pentalabel® eklipse™. 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 color 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.
