Shrink wrap is applied over or around the intended item by a shrink-wrapping machine. It is then heated by sending it through a shrink tunnel for shrinking.

Plastic shrink films are recyclable. This is due to their much lower carbon footprint than many forms of rigid packaging. When it comes to flexible packaging supplies, plastic films are some of the most environmentally friendly packaging materials currently available.

Biodegradable v Plastic shrink film pros and cons

Atlanta has learned a lot about shrink films. We have found that sometimes, traditional plastics are actually the better choice. And, sometimes, biofilms make more sense only for certain specific applications.

Biodegradable films 

  • Usually are more expensive than plastic film
  • Have yet to be tested on many applications
  • Requires access to an industrial composting process for recycling

Traditional plastic shrink films

  •  Generally easy to source
  •  Are recyclable
  •  Clear film enhances the appearance of the product when on display
