Stretch Sleeve Label Applicators

With over 2,500 stretch sleeve applicators in operation around world, Styrotech is the unquestioned global leader in stretch sleeving.

Since the introduction of polyethylene stretch sleeve labels in the 1970’s 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
