Klöckner adds capacity for vinyl, shrink films
Klöckner Pentaplast of America, of Gordonsville, VA, has announced two capacity expansions at its Rural Retreat, VA, manufacturing facility. The first expansion is in its core business of rigid vinyl film calendering, which is expected to be completed in July 2005. In the fall of 2005, an expansion of a tentering capacity for full body shrink label films is expected to start.
The vinyl capacity expansion is aimed at meeting demands for packaging and specialty product applications. Specialty shrink label films, a growing market in the narrow web sector, are used for full-body sleeves, bottle capsule (cap seal), tamper-evident bands, and multi-pack applications. Most of the films are typically printed for highly decorated labels that provide food, beverage, dairy, and consumer products with 360-degree graphics to enhance shelf appeal.
