By using similar materials for product packaging, the recycling process is simplified. If packaging and closing labels are made out of the same material, the quality of the recycled raw material, and efficiency of the recycling process, is significantly enhanced. Paper packaging that is closed with paper-based security seals can be better integrated into the recycling process than paper packaging with plastic labels.
In all industries, green innovations have been continuously coming onto the market in recent years. When it comes to packaging including security closing mechanisms, there was one final hurdle to clear.
"By using the latest paper-based security seals and tapes, industries can not only package their products in a more tamper-proof way, but also make a sustainable contribution to environmental protection and avoid plastic," says Werner Horn, the CEO of Securikett, an Austria-based security labeling specialist committed to producing high performance products in an effective, efficient and sustainable manner.
Securikett specializes in digital and physical security systems for a broad spectrum of product sectors, is attracting attention with its invention of the new paper security seal, the company says. "Our VOID labels turn all types of packaging into safes," says Horn. "We are pleased that we can now offer this special paper-based VOID technology solution. Paper is one of the most renewable raw materials and recycling of paper is well established. Pulp fibers can be recycled up to eight times."
The security closure seals are characterized by the fact that an irreversible effect remains on the packaging when it is peeled off. Opening and tampering of the packaging is thus immediately and clearly obvious. The company produces these new paper VOID seals in various designs, sizes and colors.
