Klöckner Pentaplast Film Blocks Light

MONTABAUR, GERMANY | Klöckner Pentaplast has expanded the Pentalabel shrink film line to include Pentalabel eklipse, a new light-blocking film. Company says product introduces maximum light-blocking properties into the film process and satisfies a market need for films that are cost-effective, process-efficient, and improve light barrier characteristics. Films are said to offer high-performing shrink percentages for optimal design freedom while eliminating the need for high-barrier primary containers.

The new technology is said to be ideal for new or redesigned packaging for food, health and beauty, home and garden, and household applications. In addition, these new films reportedly afford a unique blend of benefits across applications such as extended shelf life, off-taste reduction and vitamin protection (dairy products), reduced total package costs, and color protection.

Phil Heyworth, group senior VP, Labels, says, “eklipse has a built-in, almost complete light block, with no need for expensive backside black printing—saving processing time and money.”

“Pentalabel eklipse combines the highest level of whiteness for this category of barrier shrink sleeve product with superior light-blocking capabilities,” adds Chris Frank, global marketing, Labels. “This innovation provides ease of processing throughout the value chain while protecting product integrity for the consumer desiring light-blocking characteristics in their packaging.”
