To offer an effective tamper evident solution, shrink bands MUST grip both the
bottle cap as well as the bottle neck. The Boston round bottles pictured above have caps
that sit directly on the bottle. A shrink band on this type of bottle will not offer any tamper
evidence as the caps can be removed with the shrink band intact, and then replaced.
The bottles above have room under the cap for a
shrink band to grip thereby breaking
when the cap is twisted.
LAYFLAT DIMENSION and CUT HEIGHT REQUIREMENTS WITH ROUND CAPS
OR BOTTLES WILL ALWAYS VARY IN RELATION TO SEVERAL FACTORS.
- Overall diameter of container
- Height of container
- Overlap area at the top or the bottom of the container to properly allow for tamper evidency
- Transfer bead below the cap
- Transfer bead on the side of the container
- Shape of the bottle
- Curvature in the shoulders
- Requirement (or not) of a perforation
- Thickness of material in relation to the application
- Color of the underlying product in the case of printing
We receive multiple requests for samples on a daily basis. Samples are always

to determine the bands that you need without seeing your container(s).
