Many food products have the potential to be “grazed” at point-of-sale, so tamper evident seals are incorporated into the packaging design. Tamper evident materials are used to provide a clear indication that a label, seal, or re-closure has been removed. In some cases, depending on the substrate, a standard paper or file with a permanent adhesive may meet your tamper evident requirements. In more demanding applications, special tamper evident materials are available. Ultra destructable vinyl film, is a matt white film which fractures easily when removal is attempted. There are 4 main types of Tamper Evident Labels and Stickers that we offer at Etiquette:
Void if Removed Labels:
Void labels leave the word ‘void’ behind when peeled off and in some case will reveal the word ‘void’ on the surface of the product or products packaging, and cannot be re-stuck.
Ultra Destructible Security Labels:
Security labels are made from a highly destructible material that is almost impossible to remove once it has been stuck down. Should someone attempt to remove the label by picking at the corners, the actual material will break up into tiny little pieces.
These special security labels will ‘de-laminate’ if removed from the product’s surface. The label material effectively splits in two leaving a layer of label on the product whilst the top half containing the printed image is destroyed.
Holographic tamper evident labels are unsurpassed as label security tools. This specialist construction is created by transferring an extremely thin layer containing the holographic label security image onto a frangible security paper. This construction is based with a permanent adhesive that “sets” quickly to the surface when the hologram is applied. Once set, the label is destroyed if removal is attempted.
