Major UK licensing deal
for color-change labeling
Sherwood Technology Ltd., a UK-based color change specialist, has teamed up with label converter Sessions of York in a worldwide licensing deal. It means Sessions can produce Gamma Sterilization Indicator labels over a 10-year period. The self-adhesive labels undergo a chemical color change from yellow to red when exposed to gamma radiation. Applications of this immediate “yes/no” indicator of gamma exposure include food irradiation and the sterilization of medical and surgical products.
Sessions of York will continue to apply its registered brand name of Detex to the Gamma Sterilization Indicator labels. The company specializes in supplying customized labels to customers in most market sectors and in many parts of the world.
