A heat shrink capsule provides a cost-effective solution for users with multiple product lines and price points. It is ideal for meeting high-volume requirements and high-speed bottling capabilities. A good choice for applications requiring tamper evidence and with the advent of UV sensitive inks, anti-counterfeit measures can be enabled. Made from PVC or PET film with a top disc of aluminium foil. The capsule skirt can be ink printed and hot foil stamped, and the top can be debossed, embossed and or printed. The tear device includes options of a protruding Tear Tab or vertical and horizontal perforations.
The PVC sleeve is similar to a heat shrink capsule but the sleeve comes without a top disc. Potential uses extend through wines & spirits to foods and pharmaceutical applications where tamper evidence and anti-counterfeit measures are critical. Made from PVC film, the sleeve is pre-formed to suit a bottle neck, jar or container thereby optimising the dimensions with fit, function and performance. The sleeve can be decorated in the same way as the heat shrink capsule. Vertical and horizontal perforations allow for ease of removal and part of the sleeve can be retained on the pack for informative or decorative purposes.
