STES™: Secured Tamper Evident Substrate

STES™ is a synthetic substrate making it possible to simply and effectively verify the authenticity and integrity of the product. Thanks to excellent technical properties and a high performance security coating, STES™ is suitable for any application of adhesive labels combining authentication and tamper-proof functions. The security coating is a fast and reliable authentication criterion.

Technology

STES™ self-destructs if any attempt is made to separate it. It is a highly effective tamper-proof seal. The security components visible under UV confirm the authenticity of the label, and therefore of the product the ready-to-use labels are affixed to.

• Excellent printing characteristics, compatible with every printing technology.
• Easy to modify: easy to cut, no machine direction, compatible with all known traditional adhesives, very good dimensional stability.
• ISEGA Certification for contact with foodstuffs.
