ASHBOURNE, DERBYSHIRE, UK | Tamper Technologies, a manufacturer of security and tamper-evident labels and tapes, is launching into America a range of security packaging tamper-evident labels that are linerless.
With the “Go Green” agenda affecting all aspects of the packaging industry, Tamper Technologies is producing an environmentally sustainable tamper-evident label, reducing packaging waste by up to 50% per roll with its linerless label solution. These linerless labels, which can be applied onto many different surfaces—including paperboard cartons, plastic containers, and flexible packaging—are adding a new layer of security to products, packaging, and pallets throughout the distribution chain.
The labels are used like traditional labels, but they are manufactured without the need for a release liner, and once applied onto the packaging, they cannot be removed without leaving a clearly visible warning message “VOID OPENED” for quick detection of attempted theft or attack.
“Our linerless labels are now shipped globally through our distributor network making up nearly 60% of our tamper-evident label business,” said Chris Chiles, managing director. “The increase in roll capacity and reduction of shipping, carriage, and storage costs make the linerless label a great option for our distributors and their customers. We are delighted with this product range as it makes sense. It costs less and is good for the environment too.”
The TamperTech linerless label range is available in standard and bespoke options from specialist security and packaging distributors. The standard labels are available in boxes of 20 with roll lengths of 50m, 50.8mm (2 in.) wide with perforations every 228mm (9 in.) in blue with SECURITY on the top surface.
However, as the manufacturer and developer of the products, Tamper Technologies can engineer a tamper-evident solution for specific applications. At present, the linerless labels are being used across a variety of industries from logistics and transport, food, retail through to pharmaceutical and asset protection.
