The sleeve, sleever or retractable sleeve provides a 360-degree labeling format. This type of label has experienced tremendous growth in recent years.
It is a functional product that can be used for any type of packaging, so it is addressed to all sectors. The type of material used is a very flexible, resistant and durable plastic that shrinks to suit the shape of the packaging in question.
Another advantage of this product, besides the decorative and protective value of the packaging that it offers, is that it provides more surface that can be used to incorporate in it all the information that is needed, such as the characteristics of the product, nutritional values, company and place of manufacture or any other information that the manufacturer deems appropriate.
The materials used for its manufacture are usually PVC, PETG and OPS, according to the packaging, the quality or the retraction system used.
Sleeves are supplied in reels or cut & stack.
We highlight the ceramic sleeves, whose properties offer a matt white opaque finish, which provide a “ceramic” effect. Thus, we can change the appearance of a glass, plastic or aluminum bottle and make it look like a ceramic container.
To add value to this type of labels, in Grupo Lappí we have incorporated new machinery. This is the “sleeve shrink tunnel”, where we can conduct the relevant tests on the corresponding bottle and confirm whether the sleeve design is correct or not.
