Taghleef Industries has launched Shape360, a range of sustainable and versatile shrink films featuring new and updated Shape360 TDS and designed for commercial sorting and recycling systems.
Shape360 TDS is a high TD shrink clear label film that improves PET bottle recycling quality and efficiency by ensuring the separation of floatable printed sleeves from rigid PET flakes. Thanks to its low density, the weight of the label is reduced.
TDS is compatible with polyolefin sorting streams and suitable for PP and HDPE containers resulting in recoverable all-olefin packages. It is certified as recyclable by Interseroh with its Made for Recycling seal and the European PET Bottle Platform (EPBP). TDS has received critical guidance recognition by the Association of Plastic Recyclers (APR) for its recyclability with PET, colored HDPE, and natural HDPE containers.
Thanks to its no-label look given by gloss and transparency, TDS is designed to maximize product differentiation and brand shelf appeal by providing a 360-degree billboard decoration.
According to the company, the new film guarantees up to 65 percent shrinkage, enabling gradual labeling of empty and thin-walled containers with no squeezing risk, no air, and moisture trapping and preventing the smile effect. Furthermore, the film’s robust seaming is achieved using Ti’s natural-based solvents.
The full range of Shape360 shrink label films is part of the Dynamic Cycle, Taghleef Industries’ set of initiatives to address sustainability issues and contribute to the quality of life of generations to come.
