Mactac Launches Hotel Security Seals, Helping Improve Traveler Safety

STOW, Ohio – May 4, 2020 – Helping to improve traveler safety, Mactac® launches hotel security seals.

Intended for adhesion to the outside of hotel room doors, the security closure labels are designed to create a temporary seal between door and door frame. The security seal is placed following the cleaning of a hotel room, indicating to future guests that a room hasn’t been accessed since it was cleaned and sanitized.

“Now more than ever, the hospitality industry is enhancing safety measures for consumers. Across the globe, hotels are introducing new standards of cleanliness and disinfection to ensure guests enjoy a clean, safe stay,” says Kim Hensley, Senior Marketing Manager, Mactac Performance Adhesives. “Mactac’s hotel security seals are a cost-effective, basic means of improving hotel security – giving consumers peace-of-mind that their health and safety is a top priority.”

Proprietary research from Hilton reveals that three of the top four actions a hotel can take to make guests feel safe are centered on additional cleaning. The international hotel chain recently announced its implementation of the Hilton CleanStay™ Room Seal.

Mactac’s security seals feature a unique, non-residue removable acrylic adhesive. When the label is removed, a concealed “VOID” image becomes visible on the facestock, yet no adhesive residue is left on the application surface. If the VOID lettering is present, travelers will know a room has been accessed, providing a clear indication of attempted tampering. It also prevents the re-use and re-application of labels.

The facestock used on Mactac’s security closure labels is a 1.5-mil top-coated gloss polyester film, available in clear, red or blue. It touts superior printability via flexography and thermal transfer printers.

The label construction also features a 60# blue glassine liner, in which one side is polyethylene laminated. The liner is coated with a release system designed for label dispensing and is excellent for die-cutting and stripping.

In addition to hotel security seal applications, Mactac’s security closure labels are also ideal for the following applications:

  • Airplane security seals
  • Rental car security seals
  • Industrial and electronic device packaging
  • Product warning labels
  • Automotive security seals
  • Food packaging
  • Health, beauty and pharmaceutical packaging to discourage or make obvious any potential tampering

“As guidelines and mandates for the phased re-opening of businesses and establishments like hotels, restaurants, bars, theme parks and more begins, the trend to provide added consumer reassurance with security seals is certain to grow,” Hensley adds.
