A band of PVC plastic that fits around the cap and neck, or sometimes the whole bottle or jar, which must be torn and removed to open the container.
Once the band has been removed it is not possible to reapply the used band. Our stock shrink bands are 0.2 mm thick with a vertical perforation for easy removal.
Shrink band application is a fast and easy way to offer your customers a tamper evident container. Whether you're packaging anything from food to pharmaceuticals, shrink bands are an economical solution to add value and protection to your products. More cost effective than purchasing tamper evident caps or induction sealing equipment, shrink bands can cost just pennies per piece.
First, select the correct size shrink band for your product and simply slide the shrink band over the cap and container, leaving enough room at the top for the band to form to the cap.
Second, apply heat evenly with a heat gun or hair drier until the band has shrunk, giving you a snug tamper evident seal.
