Avery Dennison presents new Tamper-evident Seal Range at Labelexpo Europe
Press Release | Avery Dennison
SEPTEMBER 14, 2017
Oegstgeest, The Netherlands: – At Label Expo 2017, Avery Dennison, a worldwide leader in pressure sensitive materials, will introduce a new range of materials specifically designed to reduce packaging falsification in the pharmaceutical industry.
“Drug counterfeiting is a major global problem. Patient safety is compromised by product manipulation or substitution, and manufacturers can experience damage to their brand image, sales and revenue,” explained Gabriela Gregor, Avery Dennison product manager pharmaceutical labelling, who will be present at Labelexpo.
“This new range further bolsters the Avery Dennison portfolio of anti-tamper and anti-counterfeiting pharmaceutical labeling solutions to reduce the risk of packaging falsification; including VOID labels, destructible labels and box damage films,” said Mrs. Gregor.
Falsified medicines directive
One of the key premieres will be the Tamper Evident Seal Range, based on a newly formulated adhesive S799P.
The new adhesive offers superior performance on most varnished cardboard, making it more difficult to interfere with cartons and enabling easier compliance with EU Medicine Directive 2011/62/EU, article 54(o). This is designed to prevent “falsified medicines” entering the legal supply chain that applies to all prescription and some OTC medicinal products, requiring outer packaging to reveal any tampering, from 2019 onwards.
The Avery Dennison display at Labelexpo will give stand visitors the opportunity to get ‘hands on’ with the Tamper Evident Seal Range to see how adhesive S799P performs in combination with three different label materials on various types of varnished cardboard boxes.
The ‘Tamper Evident Seal Range’ is part of the ‘Change The Game’ activation zone that stresses the potential to redefine the marketing experience with smart-label technology. This is one of five ‘change’ themes featured by Avery Dennison for Labelexpo 2017, along with:
- Change perceptions – Say ‘luxury’ in more ways than ever.
- Change your horizons – New opportunities. Complete Portfolios. Growth.
- Change your experience – Save time. Gain an edge.
- Change the future – Choose sustainable options that don’t cost the earth.
Together the five zones introduce 15 new products and services.
“Change is the pathway to the future. Avery Dennison is leading the way in pioneering change in connecting our heritage of innovation and our commitment to sustainability with great opportunities for our customers,” said director of communications Rob Verbruggen.
