It’s not just the highest quality shrink wrap machines available at Kempner, we also stock the highest quality plastic, such as our polyolefin shrink film.

When it comes to films for packaging purposes, polyolefin shrink film is an industry leader known for its durability and ease of sealing and shrinking during the packaging process.

Polyolefin shrink films represent a better mix of the best attributes of PVC shrink films as they are made up of multiple layers composed of individual layers of polyethylene and polypropylene that provide an incredibly strong shrink wrap seal with exceptional tear and puncture resistance attributes.

There are many other attributes that make polyolefin the go-to choice for businesses in a variety of fields. For example, food and produce manufacturers benefit from anti-fog abilities of the plastic, ensuring that their product is always visible. Other additions such as being able to print directly onto the film and handy pre-perforation on the packaging for customer ease also make the film a good all-rounder.

The shrinking window of polyolefin is not quite as big as with PVC film wraps, and hence, packaging equipment generally needs to be of a reasonable standard to provide a good shrink wrap result. Why not look at our range of machines here to reduce this potential risk by making sure you have the best machine for the job at hand? This results in no potential issues arising in pre or post production storage.
