Announced in March 2010 as part of kp's global capacity expansion plans for shrink-label film, the new capacity is located at the company's Rural Retreat, USA, manufacturing facility. Klöckner Pentaplast is the only PETG and PVC producer of shrink-label films with global manufacturing in the Americas, Asia, and Europe.

The new tentering line produces high-performance PETG and PVC shrink-label films and has added significant shrink-film capacity to the company's existing global production. Pentalabel® shrink films are available in a complete range of films specifically designed for full-body or partial shrink-sleeve labels, roll-sleeve labels, promotion packs/multi-packs, tamper-evident closures, capsules (wine caps), and pressure-sensitive labels. Pentalabel® films offer excellent gauge control, lay-flat properties, ink adhesion, and seaming ability. These films are typically printed for highly decorated labels that provide
food and consumer products with 360-degree graphics.

“This expansion enables us to continue to support our customers' growing global demand for high-quality packaging films, especially in the US. Continuing to supply the global marketplace with a broad film portfolio produced utilizing the most advanced production technology allows international converters and brand companies to source identical high-quality films across all regions and further enhances product development capabilities,” notes Michael Tubridy, president and COO, Klöckner Pentaplast/Americas.
