Abstract: Abstract A model was developed to quantify the thermal shrinkage behavior of polyester shrink film under isothermal and nonisothermal conditions. This model employs the straightforward first order reaction kinetics to an otherwise microscopically complex relaxation process. It offers three unique parameters for quality control and material specification of shrink film. In the isothermal condition, the induction time, the shrink constant, and the ultimate shrinkage are the three parameters used by the model to…
