Polyolefin shrinkwrap film is a plastic polymer that is used in a variety of different industries such as automotive, food, packaging, cosmetics, and much more.
Polyolefin is a thermoplastic material that shrinks when heated. Polyolefin shrink film is now widely used around the world and has many advantages and some disadvantages when compared to PVC shrink film. One of the advantages to using polyolefin is that it remains odorless and does not harden or soften in diverse environments.
PVC shrink film contains a chemical called chloride which releases a strong smell when heated or cooled. Because of this, proper ventilation is required when using PVC shrink wrap.
