Ever since the Chicago Tylenol murders – a series of poisoning deaths resulting from drug tampering in the 1980s – regulations have been in place requiring over-the-counter substances to have tamper-resistant packaging.
One of the easiest and most cost-efficient ways to achieve tamper evidence is through an induction seal.
Certain types of foil seals cannot be removed without leaving evidence on the lip of the container – this alerts the consumer that someone has tampered with the product.
Induction heat sealing is also being used to tackle the growing issue of counterfeit medicines; it is estimated that around 1 million people die every year from ingesting fake drugs.
Using technology such as induction sealing can prevent counterfeiters from imitating your product and damaging your brand’s reputation.
A further benefit of induction sealing is protecting medicines and health supplements from moisture and germs – therefore extending the shelf life.
Induction sealing is suitable for a wide range of products, including prescription medicine, vitamin pills and protein powder.
