Best Tamper Evident Labels For Bottles: Uses, Benefits, and Providers

Posted by Chela Mancuso

Keeping their products safe to protect consumers is a top priority for manufacturers, which is why many choose to use tamper evident labels for bottles. Tamper evident bands prevent products from being opened in stores prior to purchase and protect consumers from using products that have been opened and are potentially no longer safe for use or consumption. Common uses of tamper-evident neck banding are on bottled beverages, sauces, food products, medications, cosmetics, mouthwashes, and more. Additionally, anything that is consumed or applied to your body that comes in a bottle can be neck banded. AMAC Technologies is a leading provider of custom shrink bands and shrink labels, and provides cutting-edge equipment that manufacturers can use to apply this style of packaging, completely hands free, to save time and money. 

What Are Tamper Evident Labels For Bottles? 

Tamper-evident bands, specifically neck bands that go around the opening of a bottle or container, are used in a variety of industries. These bands are typically found on bottles or containers of products like cosmetics, medications, food products, beverages, and things that a consumer would apply to their body or consume. With tamper-evident neck bands, consumers are able to make sure as they’re buying the product that it has not been opened or potentially altered in any way. 

Tamper-evident neck bands are an important and beneficial part of manufacturing and packaging because of the safety and security they provide. Not only does it ensure safety for the consumer, but also that the manufacturer loses less product to customers wanting to try the product in-store, resulting in it being thrown away. 

How Are Tamper-Evident Neck Bands Applied, and With What Equipment?

Tamper-evident neck bands are applied just like shrink sleeves. The sleeve is automatically applied to the product with a heat shink labeler like the ASL-300, and then heat is applied with a shrink tunnel to shrink the band to fit. Tamper-evident neck bands come with a perforated edge on them that require the customer to peel it in order to access the product. It is one of the quickest and most efficient ways to guarantee safety and loss prevention on your products, as any tampering is evident immediately to the customer. 

AMAC Technologies has a simple, all-in-one solution for any manufacturer’s tamper-evident neck band packaging needs. Not only does AMAC Technologies print custom shrink sleeves and neck bands in bulk, but with their ASL-300 heat shrink labeling machine, manufacturers can apply both shrink sleeves and neck bands in large quantities to a variety of different products.
