TAMPER EVIDENT LABELS & TAMPER EVIDENT LABELLING
There is a common misunderstanding within the packaging industry between "tamper evident" and "tamper proof". It is very difficult to render an item of sensitivity or high value tamper-proof, so manufacturers concentrate on tamper evidence and tamper evident labelling to show when food or product have been "tampered" with. This is where tamper evident labelling comes into play.
Many food products have the potential to be "grazed" at point-of-sale, so tamper evident seals are incorporated into the packaging design.
Special shapes, label security cuts and materials that fracture easily are all in common use to ensure the integrity of your product.
For high value electronic items, Etiquette provides tamper evident labels that offer special synthetic seals which carry a void message should they be peeled away, or, as an alternative, destructable vinyl's which fracture at a touch. Security designs can even be personalised as per your requirements.
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.
USE OF HOLOGRAPHIC TAMPER EVIDENCE
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.
Tampering is easily detected by evident grazing of the hologram or indeed the lack of complete pieces that break away from the label.
The tamper evident label construction cannot be removed in one piece. The image printed on a tamper evident label can be personalised for brand integrity at the same time.
