Measuring Cap Shrink Bands


Packaging has become one of the most luring points for the customers. However, the packaging is not always done only for luring; tamper evident labels are used to protect the product from tampering. They seal the product although they are very easy to remove still it is a herculean task to replace them after breaking the seal. Due to this property, these labels are also known as tamper evident seals.
