Holographic wads are in high demand in the market for security, promotional and advertising purposes. Induction sealing wads are used for sealing or closing bottles and containers (made of PE, PET, and HDPE) tightly. By using laminated holographic foils in making sealing wads, there is added layer of security and identity to the packaged products. Holographic sealing wads are potent tools to make the packaging truly pilfer proof. Holographic sealing wads can be applied on the openings of the mouths of capsule bottles, tonic bottles and help the manufacturing companies to present their identity along with security.

Holographic induction sealing wads offer an excellent and unique fool proof anti – counterfeit device, an intact seal which is not damaged, authenticates that the contents have not been tampered with.

In principle, hot foil stamping is the process of using heat and pressure by applying metallic foil or holograms to materials. In this, an engraved image, hot stamping die or type, is heated and forced down against a part with a marking foil sandwiched in between. The area where the die meets the part is where the ink from the foil is left behind.

We have a wide range of hot stamping foils films for pharmaceuticals which not only enhances the product’s appeal and also makes its packaging distinguishable. We offer a broad range with a wide choice of functionality, colours and patterns. They are not only look-wise captivating but also have special features like resistance to abrasion, fade, heat, distortion, scratch-proof, moisture and chemical resistance etc.

Hot stamping foils in the pharmaceutical industry can be used on paper packaging of medicines like syrup bottles, on the packaging of medical equipments, eye drops etc. They provide unique identification as well as security to the medicines.
