Nile Develops and supplies self-adhesive products in the field of security and authentication. We offer security labels, caps, and RFID solutions for authentication, anti-tampering protection, and automatic identification.

In 2015, the trade in counterfeit goods cost the global economy an Estimated 1.7 trillion USD! Counterfeit has grown by 10.000% over the last two decades.

With the base of Rolling Optics 3D micro-optical materials, we create self-adhesive solutions with the highest level of security and the most authentic appearance.

3D Micro Optical Labels

3D Micro-optical Products Micro optics is a revolutionary technology, providing new levels of security. The overt features are very visible 3D floating images that are virtually impossible to replicate. Since micro optics are very easy to authenticate without special light or tools, it is now possible for consumers to quickly verify a product´s authenticity. Also, covert features such as micro texts or hidden images can be integrated in the material.

When micro optics are combined with Nile´s advanced converting capabilities, unique and secure solutions for different applications can be created. Standard, as well as customized, security design patterns are available. Combined with special void adhesives or security slits, it will not be possible to remove and re-apply the product.

Based on 3D micro-optical material, we offer a variety of solutions for authentication and anti-tampering. The products can be used at different levels:

  • Directly on the product
  • On the packaging
  • As a security seal or warranty seal

Product application examples:

  • Industry components
  • Original automotive parts/spare parts, batteries
  • Apparels and bags
  • Jewelleries, glasses and value items.
  • Boxes
  • Bottles
  • Cans
  • Seals for boxes
  • Seal for bottles
  • Seal for industrial products
  • Seal for cans

The 3D Micro optical material offers unique features.
But in order to get the best effect each product has to be tailored.

3D Secure Label

The 3D Secure-Label provides a full 3D effect on whole labels. Independent of the 3D pattern, any print can be added to the label, based upon screen-print or UV-ink-jet technology.

Variable codes can also be integrated on the label.

Nile also offers customized void print on the backside, so when the label is tampered with, it leaves a visual footprint that is been unmounted and re-applied.

This tamper-proof label construction is the perfect solution to the EU´s new ”Falsified Medicines Directive” 2011/62/EU.

3D Duo Label

The 3D Duo-Label solution offers a partial 3D effect. The 3D label can be placed anywhere on or under a cut-out window of a standard base label. This enables integrating full security on bigger labels.

3D Cap-seal

The 3D Cap-Seal solution has a partial 3D window. Placed on the area where the cap faces the bottle’s neck, it becomes a secure seal. The cap cannot be opened without a visual sign appearing. The base label can be made out of any label-stock material combined with any print.

3D Hang tag

3D Hang-Tag

The 3D Hang-Tag solution tags valuable items by enclosing the product. The tag sticks to itself with an adhesive and is delivered on roll or as single tags. The authentic tag is designed to be removed after the product’s purchase.

3D Apparel tag

3D Apparel-Tag

Counterfeit clothing can be difficult to detect. Now, with our new 3D Apparel-Tag solution for apparel and garments, it is easy to detect if an item is counterfeit or genuine. The tag can be stitched onto one side as a flag tag or stitched completely around. The 3D Apparel-Tag is designed to withstand daily use and washings up to 90 ° Celsius. The tag can be delivered on roll or as single item.

3D Pharma seal

3D Pharma-Seal

Counterfeit medicines can be difficult to detect and expose consumers to serious health and safety risks. The 3D Pharma-Seal is a seal solution for pharma applications. Through its special multi-layer structure, several important properties are achieved:

-A visual indication of the product’s security and authenticity via the 3D effect
-Cannot be opened without a visual signal being given
-Does not leave a footprint once removed

Customized Security Seal Labels

Nile has developed a complete new platform for labels having a security seal function. As the complete construction are made in-house we can tailor the product for each specification. Meaning following advantages to the products on market:

– No need to source the customized “void” material with high MOQ´s and expensive tool cost.
– We can tailor any security seal pattern.
– We can place the pattern in register with the complete label.
– Any colour can be done.
– We can also create colour shift features.
– We can do define printed security areas on a transparent label. So that important text won’t be covered at the same time the label includes the security seal function.
– Adhesives on the label can be tailored for each application. Also partially placed and combined with re sealable adhesive.
– The technology can be combined with the RO 3D material. Meaning that the final product ensures that the product not only can´t be counterfeit, It also can´t be removed and re applied.

RFID Security Tags and Seals

RFID is a flow-control technology. It can provide a strategically significant incremental benefit to the entire supply chain, including the manufacture, logistics, wholesale, and retail industries. By adding on security features to the RFID seals, labels, and tags, one can control authenticity automatically.

From a distance or at high speeds, where the product intensity is high, RFID solutions can help verify authenticity and/or judge if a product has been tampered with. With new ICs available on the market, there are new opportunities to use the RFID in a secure way. The technology is available for UHF, as well as for HF and products. The products can be made either as labels, or as semi-rigid, single-use seals or tags. We can optimize and customize solutions to meet your need.
