Eastman Embrace LV Copolyester for Extruded/Cast Film
Categories: Polymer; Film; Thermoplastic; Polyester, TP

Material Notes: Applications:
  • Beverage packaging
  • Dairy packaging
  • Food packaging
  • Juice packaging
  • Pharmaceutical packaging
  • Soft drink packaging

Key Attributes:

  • Customizable shrink curve
  • Eye-catching 360° graphic capability
  • Lower Shrink force than Embrace
  • Great clarity and high gloss
  • Super-high print definition
  • Ultimate shrinkage of >70%

Product Description: LV stands for LOW shrink force and VERSATILE shrink curve. Under normal extruder manufacturing conditions, this product maintains the same shrink characteristics expected from Eastman Embrace but has a 30% lower shrink force. Living up to its name, it demonstrates its versatility with its ability to be produced with up to a 40% reduction in shrink force versus the first generation Eastman Embrace copolyester with a shrink curve that is similar to both PVC and OPS while still maintaining ultimate shrinkage well above 70%. This versatility, not before possible with Eastman Embrace, is achieved by making changes to the extruders manufacturing process. Eastman Embrace LV emulates all visually satisfying attributes expected from the current Eastman Embrace such as high gloss and clarity. This product has been GREENGUARD INDOOR AIR QUALITY CERTIFIED®. This Product has been CRADLE TO CRADLE CERTIFIEDcm Silver.
