How Does Heat Shrink Labeling Work?

Posted by Joe Mancuso

In the world of manufacturing and packaging consumer goods, heat shrinking labeling is a popular process, but how does heat shrink labeling work? Heat shrink labeling is used to package a variety of products from food and drink, to personal care and cosmetics. This process works by placing a shrink sleeve around the product and applying heat to shrink it down to tightly fit the products. Shrink labels can be custom printed with logos, designs, and important product information. These shrink sleeves can also be used to package twin or multi-pack items for bulk sale. Heat shrink labeling is great for packaging canned goods, jars, bottles, and even putting tamper evident neck banding on products like vitamins or food products. If you are looking for an efficient shrink labeler that is versatile and affordable, AMAC Technologies can help.
