Printashrink Eco (FLAT)

Printashrink Eco (FLAT) is a flattened continuous 2:1 shrink ratio heatshrink polyolefin offering good print performance and mark permanence. It is zero halogen, has a working temperature of 105⁰C and is available in black, white and yellow up to 50.8mm ID as standard. It can be cut and printed as required.

This zero halogen, high quality, cost effective commercial grade of heatshrink sleeve has been flattened ready for printing and is compatible with most printers.  It is a low cost solution ideal for identification and marking on many and varied commercial and industrial applications, and is ideal where a low shrink temperature is an important factor. We offer our full range of printing and cutting services on this high strength, resilient tube making it perfect for branding and marking requirements.
