Often it is a pressure-sensitive tape or label with special tamper-resistant or tamper-evident features. It can be used as a ‘’security seal’’ in addition to a container closure or can be used as a security label. They are sometimes used as or with authentication products and can be a custom-made anti-pilferage seal.
Used in applications where high security is critical: pharmaceuticals, chemical & medical equipment, crime evidence & independent labs, currency handlers, money bags, credit card/security bags, shipping & cargo handlers, transportation in food items; and products of high cost and/or high demand, such as electronics, clothing and sporting goods.
You can reduce the risk of theft for your shipments with this security tape as the hot-melt adhesive provides a reliable bond that cannot be realigned once the box has been opened. It’s an easy way to securely seal cartons and make sure that tampering is evident upon receipt with a clearly printed message. The tape cannot be realigned once opened, ensuring that unauthorized access will be detected.
Tape Jungle also has bilingual tamper tape available. Our English and Spanish tamper-tape reads:
- English: Stop Sign + text “If Seal is broken or package damaged check contents before signing the receipt”.
- Spanish: Alto Sign + Text “Si el sello esta roto o el paquete danado o abierto revise el contenido antes de firmar el recibo”.
Our IPG Tamper Tape reads:
- Stop Sign + Text: “If Seal is broken or package damaged check contents before signing the receipt”.
Anti Tamper Tape
If someone wants to tamper with a product they will be able to. Security tape comes into play by providing tamper evidence, or an indication that something has been tampered with. This anti-tamper or tamper indication is achieved with the aid of pressure-sensitive adhesives and materials.
Tamper Proof Tape
Tamper-proof is made in a way that prevents people from opening a package or container before it is sold. Tape Jungle can make custom tamper-proof tape as well for your business or product. Just see our Custom Printed Tape page for more information.
Tamper Evident Tape
Tamper-evident security tape provides a security seal for shipping cartons, pallets, wooden crates, envelopes, bags, or other containers. After applying and when later removed, the security tape will show tamper evidence by self-destructing, leaving words (OPENED) on the package and in the security tape itself.
A tamper-evident seal is a sealing device designed to reveal if the opening of a container has been interfered with. A tamper-evident seal will indicate that a seal or closure has been interfered with or removed.
