Shrink Sleeve Labels

Shrink Sleeve Labels

Shrink sleeve labels are made of a heat-shrinkable film and are the only label that fits perfectly into any containers' shape. It is used in various fields of industry; beverage, food, home and personal care and pharmaceutical products. Beside displaying product information, we also provide labels with various functions that are environmentally friendly.

Label application specifications

When the shrink sleeve label is heated with steam/hot air, the label shrinks and fits along the container's shape.

Our Initiatives and Results

Fuji Seal developed the shrink sleeve label in 1961 for the first time in the world. Initially, it was adopted as a cap seal to cover the mouth of drinking containers. In 1982, the Tylenol incident in the United States led to the adoption of our cap seal, which has become globally recognized as a packaging company that provides consumers with secureness and safety.
On the other hand, in Japan, the usage of shrink sleeve labels has been widely spread to glass bottles and PET bottles in the 1980s. In recent years, we have been increasing the commercial value of our customers by focusing on environmental measures such as thingauge label, use of recycled, and biomass materials. Even in the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020, Fuji Seal's business strived for stable production as an essential business. We are proud of contributinge to society by supplying packages that consumers can use securely.
