Does anyone have any experience to share in using heat shrink wrap/bands for decant/sample bottles that they would be willing to share?
First, are they worth bothering with for any reason? Can they substitute for simply running a piece of tape around the top of the vial/bottle where the cap and bottle come together? (What kind of tape do folks find best anyway? If pluses and minuses to various types, what are those pluses and minuses?)
How about simply heat shrink wrapping the entire decant container? Is that better? Does on have to buy sleeves or enevelopes exactly the right size or can larger sizes be adapted to smaller bottle than they were designed for?
Seems like one needs to buy exactly the right size of heat shrink band or envelope for the bottle as a practical matter from what I can tell.
What are experiences with hair driers versus heat guns? How about "sealers"? Is there any susbtitute for a "sealer"?
If these bands/wraps do not stop leakage, what purpose can they serve, if any, for decants, other than aesthetics, I suppose? I am not knocking aesthetics, by the way!
Any other tips for using heat shrink products anyone wants to share?
