Resin for shrink sleeve labels

March 1, 2005
K-Resin RK54 SBC from Chevron Phillips provides low-temperature shrinkage control and conformity for shrink-sleeve labels while maintaining clarity, gloss and stiffness. Due to its lower density, the resin provides a higher yield advantage than other shrink sleeve label materials, says the company. With proper surface treatment, films made with the material are suited to printing with solvent-based inks on both flexographic and rotogravure printing presses.
