Shrink Film & Shrink Equipment Sizing Formulas

Determining the correct shrink film width for sealing your product or package is important to reduce cost, material, and time.

Use our shrink film sizing guide and our formulas below to ensure your products work with your shrink wrap equipment. 

 

Add the dimensions of your largest product as follows:
