​MDO vs. TDO film manufacturing

The difference between MDO and TDO film technology is the direction the film shrinks in when exposed to heat.

A traditional shrink sleeve is called TDO because the film is stretched in a transverse direction.

MDO shrink film is oriented in the machine direction as it passes through a series of rollers with a specific speed difference.
