A new product has joined the range of security seals produced by UK-based technical injection moulder Talisman Plastics. This latest addition is a pull-tight security seal made entirely from recycled polypropylene, called the Enviroloc. While the security seals produced by the company were already 100% recyclable, this is the company’s first product wholly based on recycled material, as well as the first recycled security seal on the market.
The development, said James Mulvale, business development manager at Talisman, is ‘a statement of intent that we’re dedicated to reducing the environmental impact of plastic products’.
With an average breaking strength of 30kg, the Enviroloc is 50% stronger than its predecessor, meaning it can safely secure high-value transit boxes, lorry doors, roll cages, and tanker seals.
The head of the tag has an area of 917.5mm2 – a 40% increase on Talisman’s leading product. The space on offer facilitates full customisation, so text, serial numbers, barcodes and logos can all be printed onto the tag with laser precision.
The new seal is the company’s next step in ensuring that its product development is ‘fully considerate of the environment’, said managing director, Shaun Champion, who added that plans are already under way for an iteration that is fully biodegradable.
