Secure-Guard Security Labels

Product Overview

Security Labels Tamper PatternOur standard non-residue security label eliminates the time and material to clean up the sticky adhesive residue typical of other security labels. When removed, the hidden pattern OPEN VOID will appear in the film, but it leaves no residue on the affixed surface.

To minimize adhesive residue on high energy surfaces (glass, polycarbonate, plexiglass, smooth bare metal, etc), remove the label using a 180 degree peel angle. Our non-residue labels are available in stock and custom versions.

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

Our non-residue labels are suitable for both indoor and outdoor applications.

Our standard SecureGuard labels are the most economical non residue label we offer. However, the labels featured on this page (which are similar to competitive labels) have some limitations and may leave a residue in some circumstances. Read the section on "Limitations of Non-Residue Labels".

As an option, we also offer the premium Secure-Guard Plus non-residue labels which feature the best performance and are the most versatile for most applications by never leaving adhesive residue.

Choosing a Non Residue Label

Recommended Surfaces:

  • Bare metal (may leave a residue after 1 week)
  • Glass (may leave a residue after 1 day)
  • PVC (may leave a residue after 1 day)
  • Painted metal
  • Painted & varnished wood*
  • Most smooth plastic
  • Most non-porous surfaces*
  • Indoor and outdoor applications

We recommend our Secure-Guard Plus Security Labels in these conditions:

  • The label will be affixed to the surface for an extended time (up to 1 year)
  • The surface is textured plastic or another low energy surface

Typical Applications:

  • Windows
  • Doors
  • Block Mobile Phone Camera Lens
  • Ballot Boxes
  • Files and Cabinets
  • Aircraft: Metal Hatches and Doors
  • Access Panel for Calibration Settings
  • Retail Gasoline Dispenser Hatch & Doors

The label film is receptive to marking using an ink pen or permanent marker. This allows additional customizations such as a hand-written serial number, date, file number, contents label, personal signature, etc.

The blue, red and green colors are translucent, so printed information under the label is also visible.

Secure-Guard products are offered in 3 versions:

1. Stock Non Residue Labels

Stock Secure-Guard labels have a pre-assigned unique serial number for added security.

Stock labels are only available in red and with a black imprint.

Offered in rolls of 250 or 1000, stock labels are the most affordable for small quantity projects. Quantity discounts apply to orders of 3,000 labels or more.

The stock labels are available for immediate shipment -- ideal for RUSH projects.

2. Custom Imprinted Non Residue Labels

A custom imprint adds security. Secure-Guard labels can be imprinted with your custom text, logo, or serial number in black ink or other optional ink color (green, blue, red, or white).

Custom imprinted labels are available in 4 background colors (red, blue, green & black) which along with the optional ink colors provide a means for color coding.

Security Labels
Blue Security Labels with Custom Logo in Black Ink

Bar codes imprinted (with black ink) directly on the red material are readable and will verify at a 'C' grade. However, bar codes printed directly on the blue, green or black material do not read well.

If a higher bar code grade is needed, choose one of the labels (SSG21-48RE, SSG21-48BL, SSG21-48GN, SSG21-48K) with the white panel.

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 ans are suitable for most applications. However, thermal printed inks can be removed with certain solvents such as gasoline, alcohol, or lotions containing alcohol.

Some labels feature a center perforation designed for applications with a hinged door. The center perforation will break when the door is opened, for added security.

3. Custom Size & Imprinted Seals

SecureGuard material is also available in 2 inch widths and cut to your custom length. Lengths may range from 0.25 inch to 39.0 inches.

Custom length material is available in red or blue background color. The stock imprint color is black, but we offer optional imprint colors too.

Retail Gasoline Applications

We produce custom security labels for several major gasoline brands and petroleum industry groups. These labels are typically used to detect tampering on gasoline dispenser doors and hatches. If you are a gasoline retailer, click on the link below to confirm if you qualify for special pricing and offers.

Choosing a Size and Shape

If wrapping around the edge of a box, a narrow and long rectangle works best.

To block a mobile phone camera, the .5 x 1.875 inch label is compatible with most phones.

We can produce custom sizes and shapes. Please give us a call.

Limitations of Non Residue Labels

After application to the recommended surfaces, the adhesive system (for the labels featured on this page) are intended to leave no residue for about 90 days. For longer periods, we recommend our Secure-Guard Plus Security Labels.

In some conditions, the non residue feature may be impaired. In these cases, when removed, the label will still show the OPENED VOID message, but the label may leave an adhesive residue on the surface. Such conditions include:

  • Application to some high energy surfaces (glass, PVC, polycarbonate, plexiglas, smooth bare metal, etc) the non residue feature may only function for 1 day, then the label will revert to leaving a residue.
  • If the label is applied longer than 90 days, some adhesive residue may remain on the affixed surface.
  • After affixing to the surface, temperatures over 120F or less than 30F may cause the label to leave adhesive residue when removed.

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

In the event there is adhesive residue, it can usually be removed by rubbing the adhesive with a finger. If the removing the adhesive residue is more difficult, clean with a citrus-based household cleaner (Goo-gone, Orange Sol, etc) or iso-propyl alcohol.

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.
