Banding film

Bands made from high-quality film are extremely tear-resistant as the band has a load-bearing capacity of up to 30 kg. However, it can easily be torn open b hand along the welding seam. Depending on the requirements, films with different elasticity and tear resistance ca be used. Bands made of film can be printed according to your wishes just like bands made of paper: In advance with up to 10 low-migration colors for a maximum advertising effect by Branding with Banding or during banding with variable information by a thermal transfer printer - or both combined.
