Polymer films and anti-countering features are rising in demand, which is fulfilled by the adoption of shrink sleeve labels. Manufacturers are using new dual-chambered shrink sleeves with two compartments to produce a neater package for buy-one-get-one-free programs instead of the traditional large shrink sleeve to shrink two containers together.

Furthermore, dual-chambered shrink sleeves can be printed in as many as eight colors with all the same effects and on all the same substrates as traditional sleeves. Manufacturers are further expanding the amount of space available by providing a 360-degree messaging platform. In addition, key providers are deploying advanced technology, such as image printing, allowing for three designs per reel.

Key market players also may use various bright, kid-friendly graphics to make the bottles stand out and easy to spot on shelves. Recently, shrink sleeve labels are aiding in boosting the sales of new product launches. For instance, the PET patent-protected rocket-shaped bottles manufactured for the new energy drink Z?n by The Fuzzee Bee Beverage Co. which was decorated with a Pure Affinia PETG shrink sleeve label, printed by Printpack.

Most end users are looking for premium, top-quality shrink sleeve labels that are also reliable and have a fast turnaround time. Manufacturers work closely with the end users to deliver true innovation and ground-breaking solutions for the optional packaging of their products. In the U.S., multiple global trademarks, patents, and copyrights are issued to protect packages.

Several manufacturers have been deploying rotogravure printed shrink sleeve labeling, which improves the cost, speed, and appearance of packaged products. The increasing adoption of shrink sleeve labels is attributed to growing at the expense of pressure-sensitive labels, along with other label types. They are further used to promote new product innovations.

Key players are manufacturing high-shrink film designed for use in Roll-fed sleeves (RFS) labeling machines. Additionally, polyolefin-based Polyphane Fit, which was designed by Polysack Ltd., has been proven to be more sustainable since it has a low density which means it can float in water, compared to PET flakes which sink in water.

During the washing of recycled bottle flakes and contamination-free recycling of both bottle and sleeve materials, Polyphane will aid in the easy separation between these two materials.

Moreover, when polyolefin-based Polyphane Fit is applied on HDPE beverage containers, it can be recycled along with the bottle. Hence, shrink sleeve labels are becoming increasingly essential as it helps products stand out and increases shelf impact and consumer awareness.
