Clondalkin Flexible Packaging Bury Launches Shrink Sleeves For Pots

05 March 2009

Packaging innovator Clondalkin Flexible Packaging Bury has launched an eco-friendly, recyclable shrink sleeve specially designed for pots.

Assuming the role of both label and cardboard sleeve, the new product has the potential to reduce packaging weight by up to 70%, costs by 30% and CO2 emissions due to reduced transport weight.

Clondalkin Flexible Packaging Bury’s Innovation Team will be driving unique projects to create tailor made, innovative packaging solutions based on individual customer briefs and initiatives.

With the majority of food manufacturers that are using cups still employing conventional cardboard sleeves, labelling or direct printing, this alternative packaging application will bring the UK in line with the rest of Europe, where the technique is widespread.

Particularly practical for multipack or duo products, the pots are stacked lid-to-lid and the shrink sleeve is applied to the product using a hot melt adhesive. Individual pots can then be separated via a specially designed horizontal perforation where the pots meet, which then allows the sleeve to remain intact on the individual pots for both aesthetic and brand-endorsement purposes.

Clondalkin Flexible Packaging Bury is the new name for european shrink sleeves leader Chadwicks.
