Tamperguard develops sustainable tamper-evident tape

Sample article from our Sustainability & Social Responsibility

June 23, 2023 (press release) –

Futamura, a manufacturer of sustainable cellulose films, and Tamperguard, a tamper-evident technology company, have collaborated on the development of a tamper-evident tape utilizing Futamura's renewable and compostable NatureFlex film, to offer security features while promoting environmental responsibility.

Tamperguard's tape features advanced security elements that make it easy to detect tampering. If an attempt is made to remove the tape, it will leave a non-stick 'void' message on the surface, indicating interference. The tape's adhesive remains on the surface, preventing resealing and safeguarding the contents.

‘The collaboration between Futamura and Tamperguard marks an exciting milestone in delivering sustainable tamper-evident solutions and represents a growing interest in the application of tapes using NatureFlex films,’ said Christopher Tom, division manager of sales and marketing at Futamura Americas. ‘We are thrilled to support Tamperguard in offering a tape that combines the unique properties and sustainability credentials of NatureFlex films with their expertise in tamper-evident technologies.’

NatureFlex films are derived from responsibly sourced renewable wood pulp from PEFC-certified plantations and meet global standards for industrial composting, including BS EN13432 and ASTM D6400. They are also certified by TÜV Austria for backyard composting. In addition to providing an environmentally responsible solution that aligns with Tamperguard's sustainability values, Futamura's NatureFlex films offer excellent technical performance. Their inherent antistatic properties make them particularly advantageous for thin films used in tape applications for automatic case sealer machines.

The new tamper-evident tape can integrate into existing product lines, ensuring a smooth transition for customers. Its easy tear and cut properties make it versatile for a wide range of applications, offering convenience without compromising performance.

Jesse Drori, representing Tamperguard, said, ‘As a leading provider of tamper-evident tapes and labels in the packaging industry since 1993, Tamperguard is committed to innovation. Our development of sustainable products, including these compostable film-based tamper-evident tapes, demonstrates our dedication to further reducing our environmental impact. Tamperguard's upcoming move to a brand-new Net Carbon Zero building underscores our steadfast commitment to sustainability.’


The new tamper-evident tapes offer reliable solutions for a wide range of markets, including eco-conscious retailers, e-commerce companies, and industries such as food, pharma and cannabis, throughout North America.
