Tamper Evident Security Labels: Specifications & Intended Use

Intended Use:

Designed to seal most containers, files, envelopes, hatch doors, etc. Effective on most non-porous surfaces including bare metal, painted metal, fiberglass, painted wood, etc.

Plastic and textured surfaces may require special adhesives. See our SecureGuard™ Plus labels.

When the label is removed, the ink and adhesive separates from the film and sticks to the carton. A hidden pattern (dot, words "OPENED" and/or "VOID") will appear in this residue. The hidden message may vary in font, size, text, and orientation.

If the activated label is reapplied, the hidden pattern of "OPENED VOID" words will appear through the film.

Silver metallic labels include a layer of aluminum under the adhesive. Since aluminum is conductive, these metallic labels may not be suitable for some electrical applications. In these cases, we recommend our non-metallic colors or transparent labels.

Test under end-use conditions to determine compatibility with your specific application

This is a single use item. Not recommended for any application where the adhesive may be ingested by humans or animals.


Labels must not be exposed to temperatures over 100°F (37C) during shipment or storage. Temperatures over 100°F can damage the labels and shorten the shelf life. NovaVision does not accept any responsibility for labels exposed to temperatures over 100°F.

Recommended Application:

  1. If needed, clean the application surface with 90% Isopropyl Alcohol prior to affixing the label.
  2. Apply security label to the clean & dry surface at or above the recommended application temperature.


On the recommended surfaces at 70°F, the tamper evident feature should be functional within 1 minute of application. Other surfaces or lower temperatures may require more curing time. If the tamper evident feature does not perform immediately, more curing time usually improves the performance of the tamper evident feature. For best results, allow 1 hour curing time after application.

To clean up the adhesive residue use 90% Isopropyl Alcohol or a household adhesive remover (Goo-Gone, Orange-Sol, etc).
