Custom Shrink Bags
American Plastics Company is your best source for custom shrink bags and film for all your packaging needs. Whether you have bulky items to secure, pallets to cover, or smaller items to package, we have the custom shrink solution for you.
For indirect food or non-food applications, PVC shrink bags, PVC shrink banding, and PVC shrink film are an ideal choice. Our low cost, high quality shrink bags and film will give your items a professional look and keep them protected. PVC shrink film is designed to shrink quickly and under low temperatures, making it an efficient way to package all your products. PVC is generally the most cost effective shrink film. It is not recommended for food applications because it has chlorine, which produces hydrogen chloride gas when heated. This material should be used in a well-ventilated area.
For food applications, polyolefin is an excellent choice. Polyolefin shrink film is the most commonly used and generally preferred shrink film for packaging. It is flexible, strong, and holds up in fluctuating temperatures. Unlike PVC shrink film, it does not have chlorine, so off-gassing is not an issue. Polyolefin shrink film and shrink wrap can be stored in a variety of environments without compromising the strength of the seal.
For covering large objects, equipment, or pallets, we offer custom polyethylene pallet size shrink bags. These bags will keep your equipment or palletized items secure during storage and transport. We also offer poly shrink bundling film for packaging bottles, heavy objects, or groups of items. Poly shrink film is durable and puncture resistant, which makes it an excellent material for many uses. Depending on the thickness, poly shrink bags and film can be used for many different applications. Many common uses, such as packaging water bottles or canned goods require between 2-4 mil poly shrink bundling film. Heavier gauge material above 4-6 mil is typically used for heavy industrial applications such as protecting buildings, boats, or other large objects. No matter what your application is, American Plastics Company can customize a shrink solution that is right for you.
