Shrink Film Sizing Guide

How to determine shrink film width for an L-bar sealer

Determining the correct shrink film width for sealing your product or package is important for a few reasons. If you are using excess shrink film to seal, it can cost you a large amount over the long run. Using additional film will take longer to actually shrink seal which will increase labor costs. Using addition film will waste physical material cutting into your supply cost.

Package with Less™ by using the correct amount of film. Take advantage of our handy calculator to determine the width of the shrink film roll you should be using based on your product dimensions.
