Labelling solutions

For decoration, information, protection and promotion
Since the early 1970s when it brought out a new concept of heat shrink plastic tube label, the shrink sleeves, Sleever International revolutionised with Sleever®, the world of packaging decoration and protection. In a single 3-dimensionnal product it combined four functions – decoration, information, protection and promotion, in answer to the needs of the food, perfume, cosmetics, pharmaceutical and household cleaning markets. Some thirty-five years later, the group continues to apply the concept, adding state-of-the-art features to create new applications such as Tamper proofing, authentication, Track and Trace, versatility, anti-theft, customisation, etc.

Sleever® - a concept with unrivalled potential
Enabling distinctive shapes to be used, and using an outstanding range of print and surface effects, Sleever quickly and easily helps to stimulate the purchase impulse. Although sleeving is a different kind of decoration, Sleever nonetheless maintains and enhances a brand or range’s graphic identity, the key to brand awareness.

A highly competitive technique (it does away with over-packaging), cost-effective for short runs and of irreproachable quality, Sleever benefits the entire logistics chain because of its effective protection. Consumer information, a legal requirement, can now be applied over a 360° communication surface. Using these basic functions, Sleever can transform your product with its unique, innovative and continuous decorating solution.

Applications that meet market needs
Apart from its integral functions, Sleever can also be adapted to the specific needs of each of its markets. Seeldrink®, designed for liquid food goods in glass and PET bottles, meets the specific needs related to filling processes (aseptic, ultra-clean, pasteurisation, etc.), containers (shock resistance on the line, during transport) and high speed production lines. Notisleeve is another example, created for the pharmaceutical industry in the form of a Sleever which features a repositionnable multi-page leaflet label, an original, practical and competitive alternative to cartons.

Two bespoke divisions
To assist you in the choice and implementation of your Sleever solution, wherever you are in the world, Sleever International group has two divisions which specialise in product decoration: Sleever-Labels, international experts in the conversion of heat shrink films, and Unisleeve, specialists in mass market project management for the food, toiletries/beauty care and household cleaning goods sectors. Both divisions deal with over 550 individual projects a year in all the markets where the Sleever International group is active.

Mono-oriented shrink films

35 years of formulation expertise
Film Formulation, the first component of the Sleever System, is the province of Sleever Technologies which develops, adapts and produces a range of mono-oriented heat shrink films whose intrinsic properties form the basis of Sleever® and its many applications. A commitment to R&D (30% of group turnover), forms the spearhead and driving force of the group’s industrial set-up, enabling Sleever International to anticipate today the Sleever of tomorrow.

At the cutting edge of mono-oriented film technology, this world-class division employs a team of 200 engineers and technicians, some fifteen of whom are committed to research and development of the latest generation of polymer applications within a key manufacturing facility that is unique.

Over 50 exclusive formulation-materials
At its production site located in south-west France, Sleever Technologies develops the physical-chemical and mechanical characteristics of thermoplastic polymer formulations. For each of these the division adapts the elasticity, shrink curve, softening point, transparency, thickness (± 3 microns) and mechanical resistance to create the performance level required.

Among the most sought after characteristics are surface aspect, barrier properties (UV, O2, CO2…), special effects (holograms, soft touch), resistance qualities (shock, thermal effect, humidity) and recyclability. Over 50 exclusive formulations are currently available to create the Sleever range of solutions that can be adapted to your project.

A specific nomenclature
The films are classified according to a nomenclature that immediately identifies their origin (PVC, PET, OPS, OPP, TPE-G, TPE-S) and specific properties (thickness, resistance to pasteurisation, sterilisation, UV barrier, high transparency…). Sleever Technologies offers you the exceptional properties of these materials and guides you in selecting the most appropriate film to create your most ambitious projects, as proven by the billions of products enhanced worldwide by these high performance materials.
