New White Paper Details Benefits of Tamper Evident Bands

Sep 26, 2009

Raleigh, NC - In 1982, seven Chicago area residents lost their lives after ingesting Tylenol that had been laced with potassium cyanide. Nearly 27 years later in February 2009, a Florida woman was arrested after grocery store shoppers witnessed her injecting fluids into jars of baby food. In between these incidents, numerous instances of human and pet food recalls and stories in the media about the potential for terror attacks on food supplies have made the public ever more vigilant about food and drug safety and tampering.

A new white paper from Axon, a division of ProMach, describes the evolution of various types of tamper evident packaging and then focuses on recent developments in tamper evident band technology. These include the all-in-one shrink label and tamper band solution; new, thinner materials for cost savings and greater sustainability; new applications, including clamshells and deli trays; and today's higher throughput machines that reduce labor costs.

"Along with these developments, tamper evident bands remain the most versatile of tamper resistant solutions because of the ability of films to be used on large, small, or odd-shaped packaging," says the white paper's author George Albrecht, vice president of sales. "Furthermore, tamper bands are trusted and preferred by consumers." The white paper on new developments in tamper evident band technology is available for download on the Axon website under the White Papers section at
