Since first gaining popularity in the mid-20th century, shrinkwrap and flexible film have become key packaging materials across many industries. Most often made of polymer plastic, these wraps are a cost-effective method of preserving product freshness in the face of issues like open-air contaminants, heat, and physical damage. Flexible films also improve the shipping and storage processes as wrapped product packs generally weigh less than those in corrugated packaging and are often easier to move.
The benefits of flexible film packaging apply to a diverse range of products, and as such, a variety of industries utilize shrinkwrap in their operations. Food packaging groups, beverage bottling/canning companies, pharmaceutical developers, and more all commonly wrap their products in flexible film to conserve product freshness and improve shipping/storage.
Of course, to ensure that shrink-wrapped products successfully make their way across the supply chain and comply with industry standards/regulations, companies must mark the packaging with traceable codes and batch numbers. Without these markings, businesses can lose inventory, face steep fines, and even face legal consequences.
