STES® : Secured Tamper Evident Substrate, a synthetic security substrate, combining superior tamper evidence, resistance.

STES®  is an ultra-destructive synthetic security multi-layer substrate method designed by EDGYN.

STES adhesive label or sheet self-destructs if a user attempts to peel it off the surface, providing a highly effective tamper evident adhesive seal.

The integrated security features, visible under UV light, provide a secure authentication of the label, and therefore confirm the authenticity of the product.

The secured substrate's layered structure provides high level tamper evidence and rapid and indisputable authentication.

STES® has unique tamper evident properties thanks to its Expanded polyethylene structure and its versatile performant layer of adhesive.

STES® has a highly performant printable secure layer embedding a combination of invisible fluorescent fibers and particles.

Features & benefits of STES® tamper evident substrate
