What are Security Labels or Tamper Evident Labels?
Security and tamper evident labels are labels that are used to help deter theft and removal of property or used as warranty seals. Depending on the label you choose, any tampering of the label will be clearly seen and will leave a visible mark as evidence.
What Security Asset Label should I use?
This really depends on your application and intended use. Evidently is someone in intent on stealing your assets or products, a sticker will not stop them unlike an alarm of the building or safes. However they are an identifier that will be almost impossible to remove and will raise questions of ownership. They are also undeniable by site verification if any appliance has been tampered with in a way that would enable annulled warranty, to help protect companies against false claims.
However you use these security labels, they can be varied and can be adapted to your needs, check out the properties of each of the labels to see how they could work for you.
Things to consider...
Security labels and seals are an invaluable asset and do a great job within their ranges of capability for a relatively low expense. However although the labels are equip with a strong permanent or high tack adhesive and they should remain intact for many years, they are by nature a label and can with much determination be removed.
Since there are a variety of surfaces and items it is not possible to determine how these labels will stick to all possible surface options. For best practice stick the security label to a clean, dirt and dust free surface, and if testing allow 24 hours for the adhesive to fully cure for best results. The adhesive grows more durable the longer it ages.
