About Viscose Closures

Viscose Closures Limited manufactures a wide range of tamper-evident packaging solutions and is based out of the UK. They have been manufacturing their products in the UK for over 125 years and 70+ years at their current Swansea headquarters. Their products can be used in a variety of industries including Food & Beverage, Personal Care, Industrial Chemical, Pharmaceutical and many more.



Product Offering:

Viscose offers several styles of stock and custom tamper-evident solutions. In addition, they also offer capsules and shrink sleeves in PVC or PET, and plastic closures including sports nutrition caps, aluminum closures and crowns.

Compostable Shrink Bands:


The cellulose shrink bands Viscose produce continues to be their most popular product offering. These cellulose bands, also referred to as Viskrings or Celons, are a unique tamper-evident solution that are the only biodegradable, compostable and plastic-free shrink band available.

These celon bands are produced from wood pulp taken from renewable sources that is extruded into tubing and then cut into bands. Since cellulose is a natural plant-based material, it does not require heat in order to shrink onto your product and provide that tamper-evident effect.

Our Relationship:

Kaufman Container is proud to be known as the premier US distributor for all products offered by Viscose Closures including the eco-friendly shrink bands. Kaufman Container became a US distributor for these cellulose bands beginning in 1984 and our relationship has grown stronger over the years.
