Shrink-sleeve is a type of label stock that can be made of PVC, PET, etc. When heat is applied to this material, it shrinks tightly (upto 60% width wise and 2-5% height wise ) over whatever it is covering. It offers highly graphic decoration and provides lots of space for information because of its 360-degree coverage. It is the most flexible technology for shaped containers especially in the beverages, packaged drinking water and pharmaceutical industry.
