Designed for applications, such as pizza box closures, paper bag closures, grocery delivery, grocery pickup and shipping labels, Mactac’s food security labels enhance food safety and security. Security closure labels give customers peace-of-mind that food hasn’t been tampered with or sampled.
“Mactac’s food security labels are a cost-effective, basic means of improving product security,” says Kim Hensley, senior marketing manager, Mactac Performance Adhesives. “For example, tamper-evident labels make consumers aware that a product or enclosure has been accessed when it shouldn’t have been, enhancing consumer safety.”
Mactac’s custom food security labels are tailored to meet the specific needs of the customer and application.
Recommended labelstocks include Mactac’s Lintec non-vinyl tamper-evident labelstock, film labelstocks and direct thermal and thermal transfer labelstocks. Mactac’s full line of Lintec security labels includes products that irreparably break upon removal attempts, as well as permanent adhesives that leave behind residue – providing a clear indication of when fraudulent tampering is attempted and preventing the reuse or reapplication of labels.
Additionally, recommended adhesives for these important applications include Mactac’s:
