Multi-tear closure label yields double tamper protection for pharmaceutical packaging

Schreiner MediPharm, a Germany-based converter of specialty pharmaceutical-labeling solutions, introduces a new sealing solution for tamper-proof closure of folding cartons and wallets.

​The Multi-Tear Closure Label is equipped with a special combination of security effects that prevents undetected opening of pharmaceutical packaging. The solution satisfies the requirements of the EU Falsified Medicines Directive, as well as the international ISO 21976:2018 “Tamper Verification Features for Medicinal Product Packaging” standard. 

The Multi-Tear Closure Label is a transparent closure seal for folding cartons and wallets that combines two security mechanisms. Both are activated in an attempt to unnoticeably peel off the seal; the “film-tear” effect destroys the film and the “fiber-tear” effect causes the cardboard surface to tear. 

The seal is coated with a special high-strength adhesive. When the label is peeled off, paper fibers are torn from the cardboard surface to which the label is applied, and specially arranged security kiss cuts prevent the label from being removed as a whole. Thus, the label will tear and be irreversibly destroyed. As a result, the fiber-/film-tear combination of the Multi-Tear Closure Label indicates evidence of tampering while preventing undetected opening of medicine packaging. 

The solution is compatible with many different paperboard surfaces, as well as on varnished boxes. Due to the transparent material, logos, design elements and overprinted variable data such as batch numbers and expiration dates are not covered. This keeps folding cartons and wallets in compliance with current DIN and other standards for tamper-proof pharmaceutical packaging, as well as the requirements of the EU Falsified Medicines Directive.
