Looking for glass jars or bottles for
food and drink filling?


Whether you’re an artisan craft producer, or a high volume contract packer representing the leading brands and supermarket own labels – we are here to help you!

Our tamper evident bands are made from a variety of film materials and come in reel-fed, pre-cut and pre-formed formats to suit your production process.

Tamper evident bands are applied to your product to prevent contamination and provide visible evidence to the consumer that your product is intact and free from tampering. Having visible tamper evidence ensures your brands integrity and is often a requirement from retailers.

If you’re looking for a decorative and functional solution our bands can be printed to match your branding allowing them to be dual purpose.

Also known as shrink sleeves or shrink bands they are a robust option and less likely to scuff, rip or tear compared to a paper alternative.

With over 30 years’ experience in heat shrink tamper evidence you can trust Viscose to protect your product and enhance your brand.

Our Materials

PET (Polyethylene terephthalate)
Our PET comes in 50 & 70 micron, is widely recycled and is the most popular heat shrink material for our products. It is suitable to most printing processes meaning you can customise it to suit your brand.

A recycled content version of PET that has all the same attributes but with the bonus of 30% post-consumer recycled content. The latest innovation to offset plastic waste, it is the preferred option on product listings with many retailers. Please note currently only available in 50 micron.

PLA (Polylactic acid)
A Bio-plastic material made from corn starch derived from renewable resources, PLA is a great choice if you are looking to avoid traditional petroleum-based plastics altogether but still want a heat shrink band to suit your processes. Our PLA comes in 50 micron and performs to the same high standard as PET as well as being compostable. Please note PLA is currently only available in a clear, unprinted finish.

PVC (Polyvinyl chloride)
Our PVC comes in 50 micron and is suitable to most printing processes meaning you can customise it to suit your brand. Due to it being non-recyclable we are actively assisting our customers to make the switch to PET or rPET wherever possible.
