HERMA at LabelExpo 2015: to Unveil HERMAsuperPerm 63S Adhesive for Tamper-evident Labels

Published on 2015-07-01. Author : SpecialChem

The new, innovative HERMAsuperPerm 63S adhesive allows users to economically equip packaging for pharmaceuticals as well as other products with tamper-evident labels. Such tamper-proof features will for instance become mandatory for prescription drugs according to EU directive 2011/62/EU.

HERMA will introduce the HERMAsuperPerm 63S adhesive at the LabelExpo 2015 exhibition (hall 11, stand C40). The final adhesion of HERMAsuperPerm 63S is so high that sealing labels equipped with the adhesive cannot be removed from lacquered pharmaceutical packaging as well as many other polar and non-polar surfaces, such as paper, cardboard, or plastics and steel without destruction of the label or the packaging surface. Elaborate and costly special materials like self-destructive films, holograms, cellophane wraps, or even completely new folding box designs are thus no longer required.

Highly resistant and suitable for universal use

Besides being extremely ageing-resistant, HERMA superPerm 63S is highly resistant against water, hot air, and various solvents. Since it is dispersion adhesive, adhesive materials can be easily processed in spite of relatively thick adhesive coating. Due to its versatility and suitability for universal use, HERMA superPerm 63S is an optimal solution not only for pharmaceutical applications – it is also ideally suited for other tasks where authenticity, safety, and inspection seals are required, such as the automotive, electronics, and food industry.

Cost-efficient tamper-evident labels
A number of reasons can be argued for the use of sealing labels to ensure a first-opening guarantee: “Labels on pharmaceutical packaging are, as a matter of principle, accepted in the market. Moreover, they do not change the established appearance of existing packages”, explains Dr. Ulli Nägele, HERMA’s head of development. “Folding boxes and folding box machines that have already been validated can continue to be used.” The application process for the labels, which have an essentially conventional design, is technically uncomplicated. “The main reason against using conventional, economic labels for reliable tamper-proofing was the fact that they are removable. This has been invalidated through HERMAsuperPerm 63S.” Initially, HERMAsuperPerm 63S is available with white, semi-gloss coated paper (HERMAextracoat, grade 242 or HERMAsuper 60, grade 232) or with a transparent, glossy polypropylene film with a topcoat (HERMA PP 50, grade 885). If required, other label materials such as paper with security features can be used.

Located in Filderstadt near Stuttgart (Germany), HERMA GmbH is a leading European specialist in self-adhesive technology. In the 2014 fiscal year, the HERMA Group generated sales of € 282 million with 873 employees in three divisions.
