Stretch sleeve label

June 12, 2013

Engineered for highly contoured bottles and containers, the Dow VISIQUE stretch sleeve label integrates a 5-7 layer blown extrusion film that retains its stiffness while staying soft and pliable. The film expands up to 55-60%; its elastic recovery of approximately 95% allows the film to shrink back into the recesses of a container for a tight fit. Eliminating the need for a heat tunnel, the label has a high-gloss look and can be adapted for a range of applications.
