Shrink labelling with tactile surface effects


French shrink-sleeve turnkey solutions company Sleever International is offering a range of tactile coatings that offer quick and easy, customised finishes.  The SkinSleever effect is created with Helioflex printing technology, which provides a textured surface. The initial range of coatings offers surface finishes with the feel of metal, stone, cloth, wood or skin, but the choice will be extended to include over 26 different effects over the coming year, the company says.


The sleeve labelling company has also developed a new range of films. A white satin dyed GPET referenced film takes away to plastic aspect of the sleeve and gives it a density and feel identical to that of paper. Despite this change of material, the procedure promises to retain all the features that have made it so successful, such as its retraction curve. With an 80% differential in diameter, it can cover a bottle of champagne in its entirety.
