Sealed Air is introducing Opti Next Generation Shrink Films from Millennium Packaging (South Elgin, IL), a master distributor for Sealed Air. According to the companies, the new film supplies up to 30% more footage in the same footprint and at the same price as competitive products, yielding key cost, material use and production advantages. These benefits stem from patented Sealed Air 29-micro-layer technology that produces a thinner gauge with better tear resistance and better clarity than many thicker films. The Opti NX also has a wider sealing and shrinking range than standard films, making it the most forgiving film on the market. End user benefits include:
- Opti NX’s thinner gauge and longer rolls, making it possible to wrap more packages per roll, reduce film inventory requirements, and increase production uptime by requiring fewer roll changeovers.
- Lower transportation costs per packaging unit by accommodating 30% more film in the same space with no increase in weight.
- The ability of the thinner film to use less heat for many shrink operations, further reducing costs by decreasing electricity consumption.
- The ability to adapt to a wide range of shrink machinery, recyclability, and FDA- and USPS- approved.
Opti NX shrink films are available in the U.S. exclusively from Millennium Packaging, a Sealed Air Master Distributor.
