Shrink Band Sizing Guide

Thursday, February 28, 2019


Packaging Options Direct offers an assortment of PVC tamper-evident shrink bands for bottles and jars. These clear, single perforation shrink bands fit around the cap and neck of your product and are applied with heat to give your consumer peace of mind with a tamper evident seal.

If you have a product that doesn’t match to one of these cap sizes listed below; you can calculate the shrink band layflat by measuring the circumference of your neck finish in millimeters, then dividing that number by two, and adding 2 mm.  The height of your seal will be determined by the height of your cap. Ideally, you want the seal to overhang the top and bottom of the closure by about 5 mm. This will ensure the seal is tall enough to grab the neck of the bottle or jar you are sealing the cap onto.

Find out if your cap or closure is compatible

For your quick reference, we have created the following chart of common cap sizes and neck finishes to help you in selecting the correct size band for Packaging Options Direct shrink band product (hyperlinks from the chart will take you directly to the item you need). All of our seals are sold in sets of 250 seals per set, but we are happy to mail you a few samples to test prior to placing your order.
