We currently supply this versatile packaging solution to a wide variety of companies and industries throughout the UK and mainland Europe, so wherever you’re based, you know we have experience in your area.
How Does Collation Shrink Film Secure Your Products?
Standard top sheets sit on top of palletised goods to offer light protection. Collation shrink film is heat-treated, shrinking the packaging around the pallet and sealing it against external forces. This offers much more comprehensive stability and protection for palletised loads.
The main features of Polystar Plastics’ collation shrink film include:
- Shrink forces – Our collation shrink film contracts with exceptional force as it cools, giving rise to excellent pack tightness and stability.
- Tear and puncture resistance – Our low-density polythene’s superior resistance gives the film excellent pack-handling qualities.
- Stiffness – Our collation shrink film retains sufficient stiffness to ensure it cuts, feeds, and wraps without interruption when used on high speed machinery.
The combination of the above features not only leads to a low-density polythene with superior mechanical properties but also assists in the removal of board support, allowing for trayless formats.

PCWflex – Green Packaging Solution
One of the greenest films on the market, PCWflex is made from recycled plastic waste – Post Consumer Waste. The next generation of polythene reduces the consumption of fossil fuels, stopping plastic ending up in landfills and our oceans.
PCWflex film helps remove the issue of single use packaging, and our closed-loop manufacturing process keeps resources in use for as long as possible with a continuous round of recovery, recycling and reuse.
The collation shrink film recipe can include up to 50% PCW polymers without losing any of its functionality, and still be 100% recyclable.
Biofilm™ – Green Packaging Solution
