Frangible Acetate Tape and Seals
Frangible material breaks when removed, thus indicating tampering. Frangible materials don't leave an adhesive residue, but there will multiple pieces to remove.
Acetate Security Tape and Labels
Acetate tape and seals are frangible, which means they tear easily when removed. The “broken seal” feature of acetate signals tampering. After application, acetate material can be removed, but it is designed to tear into multiple pieces. The serrated edges (a sawtooth pattern) enhance the frangibility and security. Chemical tampering causes the solvent-sensitive inks to dissolve and smear.
When removed, acetate tape and seals do not leave any messy adhesive residue, but the film will break into several pieces. The low price of acetate security tape and seals makes this product one of the most affordable options we offer.
Acetate tape and seals are often used to detect tampering with various containers or bare metal access panels.
If applied to a reusable container or surface, use isopropyl alcohol to soak and dissolve the remaining acetate pieces and adhesive. If applied to unfinished metal, a razor can be used to scrape the remaining pieces, then clean the surface with alcohol.
