Gentle Shrink, Tough Protection for Thin Bendable Products

Our original low-shrink force film, LE Gold is a lightweight, strong, heat-shrinkable polyolefin that offers a gentle, balanced shrink. It won’t bend or crush thin, flexible or delicate products, and provides exceptionally clear, tightly wrapped packages at low processing temperatures.

Clysar® LE Gold film is ideal for eliminating PVC or replacing aggressive high-shrink films. It is available in a selection of gauges.
