Non Residue Security Labels

Product Overview

Our non-residue security labels provide both security and the added convenience to avoid leaving (or cleaning up) a sticky adhesive residue. After application to the surface, these security labels will self destruct when removed, which exposes the hidden message "OPENED VOID" in the label.

Security Label

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.

The labels featured on this page are the most economical we offer, but these non residue labels have some limitations in leaving a residue on some high energy surfaces (glass, bare metal, etc) and not showing tamper evidence on some plastics.

Choosing a Non Residue Label

Stock non residue labels with serial numbers are available for immediate shipment -- these are ideal for RUSH projects.

Stock sizes are avaiable with optional custom imprinted text, logo and serial numbers. Allow 1 week. Optional RUSH service is available.

Custom sizes, shapes and other colors are available. The availability varies from 2 weeks to 4 weeks -- please call to discuss.

We offer 3 material versions of non-residue security labels. Choosing the best label version is primarily based on the type of surface where the label will be affixed.

1) Secure-Guard Security Labels

This version is our most popular and most economical non-residue label for smooth non-porous surfaces. Imprinted text, serial numbers and logos are printed on the surface, without any lamination.

To minimize adhesive residue on high energy surfaces (glass, PVC, polycarbonate, plexiglass, etc), remove the label using a 180 degree peel angle.

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

Typical Applications:

  • Windows
  • Doors

  • Files and Cabinets
  • Aircraft: Metal Hatches and Doors

2) Secure-Guard Plus Security Labels

This non-residue label features the best performance and is the most versatile. It will show tamper evidence for low energy surfaces (textured plastics, etc). It does not leave a residue on high energy surfaces, even for extended durations (up to 1 year). Imprinted text, serial numbers and logos are printed on the surface, without any lamination. We offer stock and custom versions.

NOTE: If applied to painted or varnished wood, the high tack adhesive may remove some or all of the finish. Test in an inconspicuous area first.

Security Seals

Recommended Surfaces:

  • Virtually all Non-Porous Surfaces
  • Textured and Smooth Plastic
  • Bare or Textured Metal
  • Surfaces with Powder Coated Paint

3) Metallic Secure-ID Security Labels

The Secure-ID label is versatile in detecting multple methods of tampering. Its distinctive metallic appearance also serves as an anti-counterfeiting and authentication feature.

The recommend use is for non-porous surfaces (glass, bare metal, painted metal, etc). The non residue feature works better on high energy surfaces such as glass and PVC, but for limited times (it may leave a residue for long durations).

A clear laminating film is applied over imprinted text, logos and serial numbers, which provides added durability and protection for the imprinted info. Because this labels contain an aluminum film which is conductive, it may not be suitable for electrical applications where the aluminum is in contact with the circuitry.

This product is also affordable if a custom hidden tamper evident pattern is required for a small order quantity.

  • Most non-porous surfaces

Typical Applications:

Limitations of Non Residue Labels

The SecureGuard Plus product (SSG39) will not leave a residue for up to 1 year and has very few limitations.

The standard SecureGuard (SSG21) and SecureID have more limitations. After application to the recommended surfaces, the adhesive systems are intended to leave no residue for about 90 days. However, 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, 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 be cleaned with a citrus-based household cleaner (Goo-gone, Orange Sol, etc) or iso-propyl alcohol.

For the customized imprint (SSG21 and SSG39), 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.

Warning to Counterfeiters

If NovaVision is requested to produce custom security products or branded packaging, we require proof to substantiate that you are authorized to purchase that product. We independently verify your contact information and legitimacy. If you are not authorized to purchase the product, your contact information may be provided to law enforcement authorities without further notice. NovaVision cooperates with all local, state, federal and international law enforcement agencies to catch and prosecute fraudulent purchases and counterfeiting.

Counterfeiting is illegal and is defined as any attempt to copy an original with the intent to defraud. It is illegal to purchase a fake identification product, an unauthorized custom hologram, an unauthorized duplicate security label, or counterfeit packaging which uses a copyrighted brand name or logo. Further, in the USA, legislation is pending to expand the criminal law so that federal prosecutors will have an easier time prosecuting counterfeiters that manufacture bogus product labels and packaging.
