Film Element

May 1, 2007

A film element in the form of a hanger label was granted a patent. It has a hanging strap that is delimited by a punched area and can be pivoted out of or pulled away from a remaining surface of the hanger label. The hanging strap absorbs tensile forces when in use, wherein the film element has at least one film layer with at least one zone of weakening, which extends in the direction of action of the tensile forces and reduces local stress peaks under load. This zone is provided in at least one region of the hanging strap, which is at risk of tearing under load. The zone of weakening is bordered within the film layer on both sides by unweakened material in a direction across the direction of action of the tensile forces. The zone of weakening has at least one longitudinal slot that passes through only one film layer.
