Product Description
Eastman Embrace™ High Yield is combined with Eastman Embrace™ LV copolyester to create a white opaque microvoided shrinkable film. Embrace High Yield has a density below 1.0 g/cc with a high ultimate shrinkage up to 70%. Benefits of Embrace High Yield such as UV and visible light protection, and optimum MD growth that is ~30% less dense than other copolyesters, enabling more film per weight, offer a robust packaging solution that is appealing to the consumer and functionable for the brand owner. Unique shelf appeal, marketing benefits of full body shrink film labels along with the ability to shrink around highly contoured containers makes Eastman Embrace HY™ copolyester another new and fresh idea from Eastman Chemical Company that will further differentiate your product.
