SHAPE360® TDS is a high TD shrink clear label film that improves PET bottle recycling quality and efficiency by ensuring the separation of floatable printed sleeves from rigid PET flakes.
Thanks to its low density, the weight of the label is reduced. TDS is compatible with polyolefin sorting streams and is therefore a perfect solution for PP and HDPE containers resulting in recoverable all-olefin packages. It is certified as recyclable by Interseroh with its ‘Made for Recycling’ seal and by the European PET Bottle Platform (EPBP). TDS has received critical guidance recognition by the Association of Plastic Recyclers (APR) for its recyclability with PET, coloured HDPE and natural HDPE containers.
Thanks to its ‘no-label look’ given by a superior gloss and transparency, TDS is designed to maximise product differentiation and brand shelf-appeal by providing a 360 degree billboard decoration. It guarantees up to 65% shrinkage enabling a gradual labelling of empty and thin wall containers with no squeezing risk nor air and moisture trapping. Its negligible MD shrink prevents any undesired ‘smile effect’ at bottle extremities while the inherent versatility makes it the perfect choice to decorate containers in a variety of shapes and sizes and made from different materials. Furthermore, the film’s strong seaming is achieved using Ti’s natural-based solvents.
The full range of SHAPE360® shrink label films are part of Dynamic Cycle, Taghleef Industries’ set of initiatives aimed to address sustainability issues and contribute to the quality of life of generations to come.
