In its fight against counterfeit and inferior medicines, the EU responded with the anti-counterfeiting directive 2011/62 / EU. As of February 9, 2019, with few exceptions, prescription drugs can only be marketed with a security label and serial number. For pharmaceutical companies, implementing the EU Directive is a difficult task. According to the estimates of pharmaceutical manufacturers, the cost of implementing each EU pharmaceutical production line is hundreds of thousands of Euros.
Tamper Evident Label on Tamper Evident Bag
In order to be able to continue using the existing tamper evident bag, the use of tamper-resistant labels is an interesting option from a cost-effective point of view. Dedicated tamper-resistant labels have reliable packaging integrity, quality and safety guarantees. In addition to monitoring measures, this tamper-resistant label also means protection for consumers when buying medicines. At present, the materials used for tamper evident labels on tamper evident bags are usually some special materials, such as the so-called "fragile labels". The materials used for fragile labels are almost completely broken in every attempt to open. Or the so-called "Void Unmask" tag leaves irreversible handwriting when trying to unpack it. And these special materials have their own different shortcomings and shortcomings in the high-speed pharmaceutical production line, which means that a large amount of additional financial expenditure is required.
Label glue is the decisive factor
From an economic and technical point of view, the most reasonable labels are conventional rectangular or circular labels. What plays a decisive role in these labels is their pressure-sensitive adhesive. The heat-sensitive adhesive must have good water resistance and good resistance to hot air and various thinners. Only by possessing these properties can we guarantee that the label will not be easily peeled off from the colorful folding box without damaging the label itself or leaving visible signs of disassembly on the pill box. There is a pressure-sensitive adhesive R & D department dedicated to meeting various challenges. The pressure-sensitive adhesive developed and produced by this department can be used on various tamper evident bag surfaces. ZHANJIANG FENGQI PLASTIC PRODUCT CO., LTD not only develops and produces sealed labels, but also provides labeling machines for integration into packaging production lines.
