Foam Labels

Insulated packaging for hot or cold applications.



HammerSHIELD™ is an oriented polystyrene foam substrate domestically sourced and available solely from Hammer Packaging. This shrink foam is most often used on microwaveable packaging to protect consumers from excessive heat when handling the container. It is also used on cold products for its insulative properties.

Why Foam Labels?

Foam labels are printed using our state-of-the-art VSOP and Flexo presses, and combines a smooth surface and offset printing to provide superior graphics. Its thickness ranges from 5 to 11 mil, offering a range of thermal protection properties.

Key applications:

  • Microwavable products
  • Hot/cold thermal protection
  • 360-degree branding
  • Conforms to shapes
  • Light barrier tint (for beverages)
