Product Description
The world's leading shrink film just got better with the introduction of Eastman Embrace™ LV to the Eastman Embrace™ family of resins. LV stands for LOW shrink force and VERSATILE shrink curve. Living up to its name, it demonstrates its versatility with its ability to be produced with 40 to 50% reduction in shrink force, compared with other polyester shrink films and with a shrink curve that is similar to both PVC and OPS while still maintaining ultimate shrinkage greater than 75%. This versatility is achieved by making changes to the extruders manufacturing process. Eastman Embrace™ LV emulates all visually satisfying attributes expected from the current Eastman Embrace™ such as high gloss and clarity.
