Emeryville, Calif.-based TruTag Technologies, a provider of product identity solutions announced that its SecuriLam laminate product, an off-the-shelf intelligent laminate used for supply chain security and traceability purposes, has been named the 2018 New Product of the Year in the Loss Prevention category by Security Today.
The award honors the outstanding product development achievements of security equipment manufacturers whose products are considered to be particularly noteworthy in their ability to improve security.
SecuriLam comes with microscopic encoded silica particles, or “TruTags,” pre-embedded into standard adhesive laminate film stock for easy adoption in label, document, and packaging applications. These TruTags are invisible to the naked eye and do not affect the elegance or finish of the adhesive laminate or final product. The nano-porous microtags are made of high-purity silicon dioxide, which is a food-grade material and is considered generally recognized as safe (GRAS) by the FDA. TruTags are manufactured using Current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) standards, providing an environmentally friendly security solution.
“We are happy to be recognized by Security Today for delivering cutting-edge supply chain security and traceability for label, document and packaging applications,” said Michael Bartholomeusz, chief executive officer of TruTag Technologies. “The globalization of supply chains has led to a loss of control and visibility, so this award in the loss prevention category speaks volumes about our advanced ‘crypto-anchor’ expertise in offering unrivaled product security to a blockchain-based supply chain.”
