“When we work with a customer to optimize their shrink packaging operation, we first want to identify the best film for the application. We may recommend low energy, higher slip, or lighter gauge. The film choice is application dependent. Identifying the right film for a specific piece of equipment and the specific application is critical in achieving our goal of creating a near-zero downtime environment.”

Shrink film is a heat shrinkable clear film that covers a wide range of multi-packing and protective commercial applications. Introduced in the late 1960’s, shrinkfilm has been refined over the years with multi-layer technology and reduced gauge capability to its current state where there is a film tailor-made for just about every potential application.

Whether the process is capturing two like products together at 10 packages per minute to be sold as one or protecting baked goods in trays being wrapped at 150 packages per minute, we have the right film for the application.

Film thicknesses range form 250 gauge (2.5 mils) to 30 gauge (.30 mils) and in very specific applications can be printed to become a “billboard” for marketing purposes, tamper evidence, or to prevent copycat duplication of a product in the marketplace. Printed films can usually run at the same speeds as clear film.

Whether your application is containment prevention, multi-packing, protection, tamper evidence, or customization, we have the resources and knowledge to help you find the best packaging solution.


Polyolefin films are strong, attractive, high-clarity films with different options to suit a range of needs. We have Clysar films in stock for immediate delivery. These feature excellent machinability to increase efficiency.

PVC films are very clear, attractive wraps. We offer low shrink force films, differential shrink force films, candle films, and other special application films. Films are also available pre-perforated.

Polyethylene films are strong, tear-resistant films with custom properties for different needs. These provide low-cost wrapping and are available plain or printed.


Shrink film is typically an integral part of the packaging line with a significant impact on productivity. Matching the right film to the equipment and application is crucial, we want to be part of that process and be responsible for the productivity and efficiency of the packaging line.

The shrink packaging area needs to run trouble free to keep product flowing and finished goods going out the door. Our shrink packaging experts have decades of experience in creating shrink packaging systems where the equipment and film work in harmony with each other to protect your product and save you money through optimized material application.

We want to be responsible for the productivity of this area. Our goal is to create a near-zero downtime environment in shrink packaging.

The performance of shrink film is dependent on the equipment and design of the packaging line. In high-volume applications it is necessary to have the right flow of product being introduced to the shrink wrapper and discharged from the tunnel. Proper infeed, containing any multi-packs through the wrapping area, and providing the right tunnel all play vital roles in the outcome of your shrink packaging success.

Atlantic specialists can assist or completely design the best shrink packaging solution for your business’ unique needs. Contact us today to learn more.

“When we work with a customer to optimize their shrink packaging operation, we are looking to downgauge film, reduce the amount of film used, improve the package appearance, and minimize downtime with the shrink equipment.”

Our audit process for new shrink film customers is one of the most important services we provide. During the audit, we evaluate the product, the current application, and the entire shrink film process to understand your goals and find opportunities where our expertise can save money, improve performance, and decrease waste.

Often, our shrink experts and service technicians find that they can recommend down gauging films through the introduction of a tailored material for your product and the design of an optimized wrap pattern that will save significantly on material costs and deliver a consistent, high-performing shrink wrap application.
