PLA Shrink wrapper

A packaging-machinery manufacturer has collaborated with two developers of the corn-based biodegradable polylactide (PLA) film to create a shrink wrapper designed to package products of different sizes and shapes into bundles using PLA film. The automatic Eco-Bundler can shrink-wrap packages in the PLA film or traditional polyethylene, polypropylene, or PVC films. The machine is designed to completely cover packages in the shrink-wrapping process to protect the product from dust, water, and scratches. The biodegradable film is designed to provide high clarity and can wrap around any configuration of bottles, boxes, and odd-shaped containers.
