Finesse Film For Challenging Applications
Opti® NXS incorporates Sealed Air Corporation’s patented micro-layer technology into a “Soft Finesse” series of shrink materials.
These films are designed for low temperature shrink and easy sealing features expected in the Sealed Air soft category of films. Opti® NXS provides excellent optics and improved mechanical properties, especially toughness and tear resistance.
FINESSE AND VERSATILITY
Opti® NXS is available in 30, 42 and 55 gauge. The film is very forgiving on a wide range of equipment and is highly tear resistant. The properties are ideally suited for irregular shaped products, soft applications such as converted paper and other lightweight items unable to withstand the shrink force of conventional all-purpose materials. Opti®NXS provides a tight shrink appearance and eliminates unsightly dog ears. Optimal retail presentation is easily achieved, even on marginal equipment.
Sealed Air’s patented micro-layering technology provides significant source reduction without compromising performance. Longer rolls translate to the additional environmental benefit of reduced cores, cartons, pallets, warehouse, transactions and logistics which further converts to real costs on the customer’s bottom line. Thinner films also typically require less heat in the shrink process, translating to lower electricity consumption, reduced carbon footprint and further reduced costs.
Sealed Air’s Opti® NXS films are easily recycled. This material is highly desirable by downstream recycling converters and readily used in blown film and injection molding operations.
Sealed Air is proud to partner with the Sustainable Packaging Coalition and its how2recycle program. Our Opti® NXS shrink films qualify for the new local store drop-off category with collection points located nationwide. Visit how2recycle.info for more information.OPTI® NXS TECHNICAL DATASHEET
