Secure-Guard Plus Security Labels

Product Overview

 

Security Labels Tamper Pattern

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, when removed the labels indicate tamper evidence by revealing the hidden message "OPENED VOID" in the label, but without leaving any adhesive residue on the surface.

Available in both stock and custom versions, our Secure-Guard Plus is our premium non-residue label, which offers improved performance compared to most competitive non-residue security labels:

  • Shows improved tamper evidence for low-energy surfaces such as textured plastics, powder-coated paint, plastic bags, 'Gorilla' glass on cell phones, etc.
  • Provides more versatile performance for a broader range of surfaces
  • Offers more security with added options for customizing the label including custom colors, graphics and customizing the hidden VOID pattern
  • All non-residue labels (ours and competitive labels) have limitations and may leave an adhesive residue in some circumstances. We suggest reading the following sections on “Choosing a Non Residue Label” and "Limitations of Non-Residue Labels" to help you select the best product for your application.

Also, we recommend requesting our Free Samples first to ensure the labels are suitable for your project. If our SecureGuard Plus labels do not meet your project needs, also consider stock SecureGuard and our premium Metallic Secure-ID.

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.

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.

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.
