Acetate Security Tape

Product Overview
security seals

Acetate tape is frangible, which means it tears easily when removed. After application, acetate material can be removed, but it is designed to tear into multiple pieces, even if removed immediately after application. The serrated edges (a saw tooth pattern) enhance the frangibility and security.

The low price of acetate security tape makes this product one of the most affordable options we offer. We offer both stock and custom versions.

Choosing Your Acetate Tape

Acetate products are particularly suited for sealing paper, paperboard, and cardboard -- especially those with low surface strength (where 'fiber pull' may be an issue for other security tapes).

Acetate security tape is available in multiple colors -- ideal for color coding containers and contents.

Acetate evidence tape is available in an English version and Spanish version.

Custom printed tape offers more security.

Acetate tape is primarily intended for indoor applications. However, it can be used outdoors for up to 1 month. For longer outdoor applications, we recommend labels or tape constructed of polyester film.

Acetate security tape is often used to detect tampering with various containers or bare metal access panels. The "broken seal" feature of acetate signals tampering.

Typical applications include sealing paper bags, envelopes, bottles, jars, cartons, bare metal, styrofoam, most packaging materials, some plastic surfaces, etc.

Chemical tampering causes the solvent-sensitive inks to dissolve and smear.

The acetate surface is receptive to marking by using ink pen or permanent marker. This allows additional customization of security features such as a hand-written serial number, file number, contents label or personal signature.

Acetate tape is mostly translucent. If applied over hand-written or printed information, the underlying information is still readable and the acetate will protect it from alterations.

When removed, acetate tape does not leave any messy adhesive residue, but the film will break into several pieces.

Clean Up: 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.

Stock 1.25 in Wide Acetate Security Tape

For maximum contrast of the hand-written information, our acetate tape has a white write-on strip. The tape can be used as a continuous tape or cut (or torn) into custom lengths. The printed pattern (SECURITY SEAL, EVIDENCE OR EVIDENCIA) repeats every 5 inches.

Each roll is supplied in a cardboard dispenser box. The paper backing has a crack-and-peel feature for added convenience in removing the tape.
