A new heat-shrink label film from France's Sleever Technologies (North American office in Toronto) provides an anti-forgery feature for PET and glass bottles for wines, spirits, and pharmaceuticals. Holosleeve 3D is a mono-oriented OPS film with a "memory" so that it retains embossed/debossed relief effects or 3D patterns after heat shrinking. The relief effects can be combined with printing in up to 10 colors. Also, a new type of opening system uses a V-shaped microperforation pattern that is difficult to copy.
