Shrink Bands and Shrink Labels

Shrink bands and shrink labels are packaging materials commonly used for tamper-evident sealing and branding of various products. Shrink bands are cylindrical or tubular sleeves made from heat-shrinkable materials such as PVC, PET, or polyolefin. They are placed over the caps or lids of containers and then subjected to heat, causing them to shrink and tightly conform to the shape of the container's neck or closure. Shrink bands provide a visible indication of tamper evidence, as any attempt to open the product would cause the band to tear or distort, signaling potential tampering. On the other hand, shrink labels are full-body sleeves that cover the entire surface of a product container. Like shrink bands, they are applied using heat, conforming tightly to the shape of the container and providing 360-degree branding and decoration. Shrink labels offer excellent graphic reproduction and can be printed with product information, branding, and promotional messages. Both shrink bands and shrink labels are widely used in industries such as food and beverage, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and household goods to enhance product safety, security, and visual appeal.
