EcoShrink Compostable Packaging Film

July 7, 2021


EcoShrink Compostable Film is a commercially compostable alternative to common plastic shrink wraps for use in industrial packaging applications.


EcoShrink takes both the beginning and the end of the shrink wrap product life cycle into account. EcoShrink is sourced from certified commercially compostable resins and contains 45% biopolymers. After use, EcoShrink can be disposed of in a commercial composting environment to reduce the amount of plastic packaging that normally ends up in a landfill.* EcoShrink is shelf and curb stable and will retain its integrity until disposed of properly.


In addition to these “green” benefits, EcoShrink has many practical characteristics. It is designed for standard heat-shrinking applications. Users of EcoShrink can shrink wrap their small or large components as normal to conform to the shape of the object. EcoShrink is a great way to keep dust, dirt, and moisture off warehouse stock while keeping components bundled into a streamlined package. Shrink wrapping can be done with a wide variety of standard shrink tools. Simply measure the size of the unit, determine how much film is needed to wrap around it with enough for overlap, then shrink wrap as usual. EcoShrink is available in 2 or 4 mil (50 or 100 µm) thicknesses and as single wound or centerfold sheeting in widths of 18” (45.72 cm) or 36” (91.44 cm). Rolls come individually boxed or in cradle packed pallets.
