CRYOVAC D-955 SHRINK FILM                                                       MSDS Data Sheet
Product of SealedAir

D-955 Shrink Film has been specially formulated by Cryovac scientists to meet the demand for a shrink film with exceptional toughness combined with excellent merchandisability.  It can well be described as a "work-horse" film: tough, durable, with the versatility to be used in a wide range of applications.

Superior abuse and puncture resistance make D-955 ideal for packaging products that must survive rough handling in distribution, such as multipackaging for warehouse clubs.  Its high shrink energy tightly unitizes multiple items, often eliminating the need for supporting trays or banding.

Because of its wide range of shrink properties, D-955 Shrink Film performs equally well for unusual-shape objects, window boxes, and heavy products with premium add-ons or "pack-ons."  The film's excellent memory prevents it from relaxing under fluctuating temperatures.  This same memory feature is especially important if a product is handled a great deal while on retail display; the package stays taut and wrinkle-free.

Exceptional tensile strength enables D-955 Shrink Film to be used in thinner gauges than competitive films while delivering the same degree of protection.  It also produces very high-integrity seals over a broad temperature range, and runs at excellent speeds on various types of packaging equipment.

At the point of sale, D-955 Shrink Film outperforms other shrink films in merchandising appeal with excellent optics.  Its exceptional clarity (both see-through and contact), high gloss and sheen impart a premium look to consumer products, giving them a distinct advantage in eye appeal.
