How is Tamperguard’s tamper evident tape different from other types of security tapes?

Our tapes have two major differences from our competitors: a wider temperature range and the length of the rolls. 

Our tamperevident tapes for bags void at all temperatures, including in the critical +40°to +60°C range where all other tapes fail 

Also, we offer up to 2,500-metre flat rolls or 10,000-metre spools for additional production efficiency. 

What happens between 40°C and 60°C?

Above 40°C, adhesives on tamperevident tapes begin to soften. This temperature range is high enough for someone to open a security bag or courier envelope with no evidence of tampering, and yet low enough that it won’t trigger the thermochromic ink. 

What’s the benefit of tamper-evident tape that works in that range?

The reason your clients are buying security bags is because they believe them to be secure. They want the most secure solution available on the market and our tapes deliver that. 

I have face cuts on my tape. Isn’t that simpler?

Face cuts provide an additional layer of security. But it is fairly easy to remove a tamper-evident tape with face cuts and leave no trace, as demonstrated here 

All you have to do is cover the security face cuts with another tape, and the face cuts can be defeated.   

How easy is it to open a bag within that temperature range?

It’s easy enough. You just need a hair dryer or heat gun. You heat the tape within that temperature range and start pulling slowly. It takes about two minutes.  

Is this a known issue in the industry?

It is, and if security bag manufacturers know about it, you can be sure thieves know about it too. 

Is it worth considering for my business?

If you truly want to stay ahead of the curve, this is a must-have product.  

Our clients tell us that this is how they win new customers. They simply have to demonstrate the limits of the tamper-evident tape the competition is using.

What is the price difference between Tamperguard’s tape materials and other similar products?

Our tamper-evident solutions are very price competitive, more so when you consider the productivity gains of using longer rolls. 

Is this feature only available for security bags?

Tamperguard has developed proprietary technology that makes both security bags and courier bags secure at all temperatures. 

What is the next step?

See for yourself. Contact us to request a sample. It will arrive within a week.
