Sealed Air, claiming a major advancement in the premium shrink film market, introduced its new Opti Next Generation Shrink Films from Millennium Packaging.

According to the company, the new film supplies up to 30 percent more footage in the same footprint and at the same price as competitive products, yielding key cost, material use and production advantages. 

These benefits stem from patented Sealed Air 29-micro-layer technology that produces a thinner gauge with better tear resistance and better clarity than many thicker films. The Opti NX also has a wider sealing and shrinking range than standard films, making it the most forgiving film on the market. 

The Opti NX family includes five all-purpose (Opti NXG) and two soft-shrink (Opt NXS) gauges that meet the needs of a broad array of applications, including irregularly shaped products and soft items such as converted paper that are unable to withstand the shrink force of conventional all-purpose materials.  The new films adapt to a wide range of shrink machinery, are recyclable, and are both FDA- and USPS- approved.
