Secure-ID Security Labels

Product Overview

Our premium Secure-ID labels provide several unique features:

  1. Shows tamper evidence for multiple issues:
    • Removing the label from the surface – fully reveals the hidden message
    • Cutting the label – reveals a silver cut line on both ends of the label where cut
    • Scratching (or creasing) the label – reveals the hidden message when scratched
    • Delaminating the factory-applied clear film – fully reveals the hidden message

  2. Excellent Non Residue Performance – shows tamper evidence without leaving a messy adhesive residue on the surface and is compatible with most surfaces and varying temperatures.
  3. Distinctive Metallic Finish - The Secure-ID labels have a distinctive metallic finish which serves as an anti-counterfeiting and authentication feature. We are the only manufacturer in the world for this unique label.
  4. Long Life Background Colors - The standard background colors are blue, magenta, green and gold are guaranteed to be fade-proof for at least 10 years. The colors are NOT printed – they are diffracted from white light. Theoretically, the color will last for decades.
  5. Long Life Tamper Evident feature – the hidden "VOID OPENED" pattern is created using a unique "optically thin film" construction, which maintains it's functionality for decades.
  6. Compatible with Cold Applications – the label can be applied at temperatures as low as +10°F. After application, the label will show tampering over a wide temperature range (-40°F to over +200°F)

Our stock Secure-ID labels have a pre-assigned unique serial number printed in black ink. For added security, Secure -ID labels can be imprinted with your custom text, logo, or serial number in black ink or other optional ink colors.

Gold Security Label Security Label with Custom Text

Our Secure-ID labels are designed to show signs of tamper evidence immediately when removed from the applied surface. Unlike some competitive products, there is no waiting period for the tamper evidence feature to become operable.

Once activated, the hidden tamper evident message is permanent, which prevents unauthorized re-use of the tampered label.

The stock hidden pattern OPENED VOID varies by label. The graphics for the release pattern "OPENED VOID" feature shown is a fair representation. However, the actual graphic may vary by size, orientation, alternating forward and backwards reading, backwards reading, upside down, include upper and lower case, font, etc.

These non-residue security labels are compatible with most non-porous surfaces such as metal, glass, wood, plastic, etc. Painted and varnished surfaces are also acceptable, however if the varnish/painted surface is not fully bonded, the finish may be removed with the label.

The acrylic adhesive leaves no residue for at least 90 days after application to the surface. If the Secure-ID label is applied longer than 90 days, a minimal amount of adhesive residue may remain on some surfaces. However, any minimal residue can be easily cleaned with a citrus-based household cleaner (Goo-gone, Orange Sol, etc).

For the customized imprint, our standard process is to print custom text, logos and serial numbers on the surface of the label using thermal transfer resin ribbons. The thermal inks are durable to mechanical abrasion, scratching and most liquids and are suitable for most applications. However, thermal printed inks can be removed with certain solvents such as gasoline, alcohol, or lotions containing alcohol.

Free samples of the Security-ID labels are available for testing. We recommend you test for the specific application before ordering.

We also offer optional custom sizes and custom hidden tamper evident messages.

Tamper evident security labels are often used to detect tampering with objects containing valuables, confidential information, or calibration/equipment settings. Typical applications include file cabinets, aircraft hatches, entry doors, envelopes, cartons, electronic components, ballot boxes, voting machines, etc.

Because the Secure-ID label contains an inner layer of aluminum which is conductive, it may not be suitable for electrical applications where the label is in direct contact with circuitry.

Choosing a Non Residue Label

We offer multiple constructions of non-residue labels, which allows you to select the label which best fits your application.

The following table summarizes and compares the relative performance and features of our non-residue label products.

Footnotes:
(1) Using our polyester affixing pad under the label improves the performance of the tamper evident feature to 'GOOD'
(2) Using our polyester affixing pad under the label improves non residue performance to 'GOOD' (3 months)
(3) If the surface structure is weak, the label may tear the surface without revealing the hidden VOID message in the label; test to confirm suitability
(4) If applied to painted or varnished wood, the adhesive may remove some or all of the finish, Test in an inconspicuous area first
(5) To improve the performance for tamper evidence, clean the surface with 90% ISO propyl alcohol before affixing the label
(6) Typical minimum surface temperature to assure label will show tamper evidence after affixing to the surface
(7) Typical temperature range where label will show tamper evidence when removed
(8) Background colors are diffracted from white light (not printed with inks)

Limitations of Non Residue Labels

Typically for most surfaces, when our SecureGuard labels are removed they will not leave adhesive residue for 3 months. However, the actual length of time for non-residue performance varies based on the surface. Please review the list of surfaces in the section “Choosing a Non-Residue Label” before selecting your label. Then request our free samples to test the labels before you order.

After affixing to the surface, the length of time for non-residue performance may be shortened if the label is exposed to temperatures above +120°F or below +30°F

To minimize adhesive residue on the surface, remove the label using a 180 degree peel angle.

If there is adhesive residue, it can be cleaned with a citrus-based household cleaner (Goo-gone, Orange Sol, etc) or isopropyl alcohol.

Our optional affixing pads may solve some issues for difficult surfaces:

  1. For low energy surfaces (smooth plastic, textured plastics, powder coated paint, etc) apply an affixing pad which will increase the tamper evident feature.
  2. For high energy surfaces (bare stainless steel, PVC plastic, etc.) apply an affixing pad which will extend the time duration for non residue performance.

For the customized imprint, our standard process is to print custom text, logos and serial numbers on the surface of the label using thermal transfer resin ribbons. The thermal inks are durable to mechanical abrasion, scratching and most liquids and are suitable for most applications. However, thermal printed inks can be removed with certain solvents such as gasoline, alcohol, or lotions containing alcohol. As an added option, we also offer UV-cured ink jet (black ink only) imprints which are more durable.
