Cortec EcoShrink ® is a compostable film for shrink wrapping. It aims to make the "circular economy" a reality while also meeting conventional packaging requirements.

EcoShrink® is certified industrial biodegradable and intended for use in regular heat-shrinking applications. Users can shrink-wrap any size of components using EcoShrink. With this flexible and versatile packaging item, wrapping components are streamlined and the shrink film conforms to the shape of the object.

EcoShrink® can be discarded in an industrial composting setting after use. As a result, there is a reduction in the quantity of plastic packaging that would otherwise wind up in a landfill.* EcoShrink® is stable and can retain its integrity until properly discarded.

Packaging & Storage of Compostable Film

Packaging includes single wound, centerfold sheeting, rolls, or cradle-packed pallets. Width per package may range from 18” (45.72 cm) or 36” (91.44 cm). Shrink film thickness is 2 or 4 mils (50 or 100 µm).

To guarantee optimal product performance, keep it in its original packaging. Store indoors with the room temperature at 40-100 °F (4-38 °C). Keep away from direct sunlight.
