Klöckner Pentaplast develops light blocking shrink label film

Pentalabel eklipse builds on the company’s existing Pentalabel shrink film line

Klöckner Pentaplast has developed Pentalabel eklipse, a shrink label film that introduces maximum light blocking properties and improves light barrier characteristics.

Pentalabel eklipse builds on the company’s existing Pentalabel shrink film line. Pentalabel eklipse features a built-in, almost complete light block, removing the need for backside black printing. The film offer high performing shrink percentages for optimal design freedom while eliminating the need for high-barrier primary containers. 

Pentalabel eklipse technology is described as 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, reduced total package costs and color protection.

‘Pentalabel eklipse combines the highest level of whiteness for this category of barrier shrink sleeve product with superior light blocking capabilities,’ added Chris Frank, responsible for global marketing of labels at Klöckner Pentaplast. ‘This innovation provides ease of processing throughout the value chain while protecting product integrity for the consumer desiring light blocking characteristics in their packaging.’
