Stretch Sleeve Labelers & Labeling Equipment

Styrotech® is the leader in stretch sleeve labeling with over 2,500 stretch sleeve label applicators in operation around the world.

Since the introduction of polyethylene stretch sleeve labels in the 1970s Styrotech® stretch sleeve application technology has been recognized for its ease of operation, durability, and dependability.

Stretch sleeve labeling is a simple, flexible, and economical method of container decoration that does not require the use of adhesives or heat shrinking. It provides 360⁰ full-color graphics coverage for round, square and rectangular containers.

Other features and benefits of stretch sleeving include:

  • Low cost – only simple paper labels are less expensive than polyethylene stretch sleeves
  • No adhesive required – saves $ and enhances container recyclability
  • No heat shrinking required – saves $ and reduces capital investment
  • Monolayer polyethylene material is resistant to moisture, many chemicals, and scuffing
  • Reverse printing option – printing on the container side of a label helps shield graphics from moisture and chemicals that could deface the label

Popular stretch sleeving applications include:

  • Ready-to-drink beverages
  • Edible oils
  • Fluid and dehydrated dairy products
  • Household cleaning products
  • Laundry products
  • Bleach and related chlorine-based products
  • Kitty litter
