Package sustainably using banding

Sustainable packaging is now an essential environmental consideration. This means using the least amount of packaging material, plastics and energy where at all possible. A number of sustainable improvements can be realised using Bandall's banding technology, with both the banding materials and banding equipment.

Reduce packaging material

Save on packaging materials

The banderol delivers a number of savings. The amount of packaging material required in relation to the size of product can be minimized, especially when compared to alternative packaging such as shrink film, bags, boxes and other complex packaging methods. Additionally, banding often renders the use of other additional packaging unnecessary. Such as metal clips, elastic bands and adhesive labels.
