Berlin Packaging has a solid selection of shrink bands that can be paired with bottles, and protective liners that can be fitted to caps. These packaging options help to prevent contamination and ensure product integrity. Options include bands for wine bottles, decorative tins, or smaller glass and plastic packaging. Bands are available in clear and black, and for some items, in green, gold, red, and silver.
Why It's Important to Use Shrink Bands
Shrink bands are used to deter and identify product tampering and secure closure. They are wrapped around the necks and lids of jars and, traditionally, wine bottles, and then heated until they fit snugly around the cap. As with tamper-evident caps, the breaking of these bands alerts you to the potential contamination of products. PVC shrink bands also keep caps and closures tightly secured to reduce the chance of contents leaking. Some options are perforated for easy removal, while others are custom cut so they're easy to apply. Bands for wine bottles are simply placed over the cork or stopper and can feature tear tabs for easy opening.
What Types of Cap Liners Are Available?
Plastic cap liners provide an extra barrier against outside contaminants and tampering. They are placed between the cap and the mouth of the bottle or container, then shrunk with a heat gun to create an airtight seal. They also prevent product leakage. Certain pressure sensitive liners can be used with both glass and plastic packaging, and do not require heat to adhere to the bottle's mouth. Disk liners have a tab that allows for easy removal, and they are often used with packaging that contains creams or lotions. Liners help keep products fresh by preventing air exposure and are a good fit for containers that hold food or beverages.
