Laminate provides supply chain security

by Inside Logistics Online Staff

EMERYVILLE, CALIFORNIA – TruTag Technologies, a security and technology solution provider, launched its new SecuriLam product, the world’s first off-the-shelf, intelligent laminate used for supply chain security and traceability purposes.

SecuriLam laminate comes with microscopic encoded silica particles, or “TruTags” pre-embedded into standard adhesive laminate film stock for easy adoption in label, document, and packaging applications.  These TruTags are covert to the naked eye and do not affect the elegance or finish of the adhesive laminate or final product.

The tags are a food-grade product and is considered Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) by the United States Food and Drug Administration and is manufactured using Current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) standards, providing an environmentally friendly security solution.

Most importantly, TruTags are programmable, allowing customers to segment their packaging and instantly verify information in the field, such as manufacturing location, product type, or authorized geography to prevent product diversion, identify unauthorized grey markets, and find other distribution vulnerabilities. SecuriLam laminate can be authenticated instantly at any point in the supply chain using TruTag’s proprietary authentication devices enabling real-time product intelligence.

TruTag uses standard adhesive laminate constructions that can be incorporated into nearly any laminated product available. Additionally, customized specifications can be provided if needed. TruTag’s SecuriLam security product is highly cost-efficient and is comparable with other specialty laminate adhesives available in the market today.

“TruTag continues to build a globally-focused and comprehensive product identity platform that now includes our SecuriLam intelligent laminate–driving successful expansion of TruTag’s technology platform into exciting new industries including security documents, quality assurance programs, and labels and packaging,” said Michael Bartholomeusz, CEO of TruTag Technologies.

“We are excited to provide a revolutionary product that will put security back into packaging and label solutions with significant real-world impact to brand protection, product traceability, and consumer safety.
