Stretch Sleeve Label Applicators

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

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

  • Ready-to-drink beverages
  • Edible oils
  • Fluid and dehydrated dairy products
  • Household cleaning products
  • Laundry products
