The world's leading shrink film just got better with the introduction of Eastman Embrace™ Encore to the Eastman Embrace™ family of resins. Embrace™ Encore was designed to produce shrinkable films that are compatible with the PET recycling process while still offering superior shrinkable film performance. Shrinkable film performance is modified by making changes to the extruders manufacturing process. Eastman Embrace™ Encore emulates all visually satisfying attributes expected from the current Eastman Embrace™ such as high gloss and clarity.
