Shrink Labels

Shrink sleeve and shrink wrap labels are applied to bottles, cans, and various other types of packaging.  They provide 360° coverage of the package and significantly increase space for branding, imagery, and regulatory information.  Adhesives used in the manufacture and application of shrink labels must provide low activation and/or nipping temperature due to the heat sensitive nature of the films used in shrink label manufacturing.  In addition, these adhesives should provide exceptional clarity as to not interfere with branding printed on the label.  Dow adhesives for shrink label applications are listed below.
