Printasleeve L/F PVC

Printashrink L/F PVC is an ultra-thin wall, low cost heatshrinkable lay-flat PVC. It offers excellent electrical insulation, an ultra low shrink temperature and resists most chemicals and oils. It is available in a wide range of colours and sizes up to 150mm and can be cut and printed as required.

This ultra-thin wall PVC is often used for commercial and industrial labelling, tamper-proofing and in the construction of bottle seals, battery packs and capacitors. It is incredibly versatile and easily shrinks to fit irregular shapes. It is available as tubing or welded film, and can be supplied with UL and BS approvals. We offer our full range of printing and cutting and perforation services on this adaptable sleeve making it perfect for branding and marking requirements. Lay-flat PVC tubing is available in standard widths from 7mm up to 300mm, the welded film can be supplied to fit virtually any application.
