Sleeving Formats

Sleeving or bands can be produced on a reel for automatic application or as pre-cut sleeves / bands or preformed bands for hand application.

Preforms are cut bands which have been formed into a shape by shrinking them on to a mould. Preforms make it easier for production workers to apply sleeves by hand. Viscose has over 250 mould sizes.

These products need heat to shrink either by a heat tunnel or gun. It is common to pre-distort the print deisgn so it will assume the correct proportions after shrinking has taken place. Viscose can pre-distort artwork supplied by its customers, or offer suggestions based on your brand.

Single or multiple lines of perforations can be introduced either vertically or horizontally to make sleeves easier to remove or more susceptible to damage if tampered with.

Coloured, printed, holographic tear strips can be affixed to the sleeving / cutbands or preforms in a vertical orientation and can be used in combination with perforations to provide an effective easy-open feature to the pack. Plain colours, metallic colours and holographic designs are available.
