Anti-counterfeit label MSL

Anti-counterfeit label MSL

Anti-counterfeit label MSL is an abbreviation for Microcut Security Label, which is manufactured by our patented technology as a special label for tampering prevention.

The security label MSL designed with a fine pattern is a “counterfeit prevention product to be attached to products” manufactured by the world’s only manufacturing technology that can be used as both a sealing label and a stamp label.
The anti-counterfeit label MSL has three major features.

  ”Cannot imitate”
  ”Easy visual discrimination”
  ”Cannot be reused”

You can protect your rights by attaching a micro-cut security label made of fine shape to the product. It is technically impossible to imitate a precise shape using patented technology, so you can use it with confidence. Each company will produce its own original design.

Design sample & pasting sample
The shape of the anti-counterfeit label MSL is characterized by fine cutouts.

The shape of the anti-counterfeit label MSL is characterized by fine cutouts. (This pattern is a sample. All microcut security labels are made with the original design, so there is no same design). The image on the right is the MSL pasted as a seal.

All the white parts of the design sample are omitted, and it is made up of only radial lines and letters. It is impossible to remove such a shape with a blade, but the security label is the “anti-counterfeit label MSL”.

Features of anti-counterfeit label MSL

Can’t imitate

Manufactured with patented proprietary technology
  • The security label uses fine letters and patterns cut out by special technology.
  • The printing material uses a material that was originally developed. The same material is not available.
  • Since it is manufactured by a special process, the machine for manufacturing is also developed by us.

Easy visual discrimination

Even if an amateur sees it, it can be visually identified.
  • When used as a sealing label, it is easy to visually distinguish the label before opening and the label after opening.
Easy visual discrimination

The anti-counterfeit label MSL always remains after it is torn when the seal is opened, so it is easy to visually identify by looking at the label.

Cannot be reused

Once peeled off, it cannot be reattached
  • Once a design using letters or patterns is peeled off, small parts will be cut off or part of the design will remain, so the peeled label cannot be reused again.
Since it is a flexible label, it can be attached to curved parts.
  • By increasing the number of cuts, you can play with the shape of the security label, so it can be attached where there are irregularities.
Cannot be reused

Fine patterns cannot be peeled off. If you forcibly peel it off, it will tear, so you cannot peel it off and re-paste it.

Combined use with other anti-counterfeiting measures

Depending on the application, the anti-counterfeit label MSL can be used in combination with the following anti-counterfeiting measures. In addition, since new anti-counterfeiting measures are constantly being developed, it is possible to combine them with the most suitable anti-counterfeiting measures for each occasion. (The photo is taking a sticker to get the screen code information from the reading app using the iPhone’s camera function)
MSL currently can be combined with the following 7 types of anti-counterfeiting measures .. Please order according to the application.

Screen code app for iPhone
Discrimination by screen code

Sticker with screen code printedIt is a technology that reads the embedded code with a reader and outputs it to audio or video. Since it can be read by the iPhone app, it is highly versatile, and the feature is that the embedded code is not visible from the outside, making it suitable for printed matter where design is important. The screen code can be expressed in various forms such as audio and video when it is output, so you can use it according to your needs. Another major feature is that it can be read using a dedicated iPhone app.

Discrimination by hologram

ホログラムHologram is a photographic technology that records a three-dimensional image on a plane using the interference fringes of light. Widely used for gift certificates, gift certificates, credit cards, etc. In recent years, it is the most popular technology used for banknotes. Technology development is still underway.。

Discrimination by ultraviolet rays

It is a technology that develops color when black light (ultraviolet rays) is applied to the part printed with special luminescent ink. A black light is a light that emits long-wavelength ultraviolet light that is slightly visible to the human eye, so it is almost invisible to the human eye, but it emits light only to the phosphor contained in the object exposed to the black light.

 Irradiation with black light

Discrimination by micro printing

At first glance, it is a technology that prints minute characters that cannot be recognized by the naked eye. Microprinting is a technology that inserts very small characters into lines or parts of patterns. Since it cannot be duplicated with a low-resolution copier, it is one of the means to confirm the authenticity of the printed matter. This technology is also used for banknotes.

Discrimination by discoloration by angle

Technology that makes the color look different depending on the viewing angle of the printed part. By printing polarized ink, even if nothing is printed at first glance, it can be seen by changing the angle or adjusting the amount of light.
It does not respond to color copying or scanning.

Discrimination by 2D code

Example of combination of 2D code and MSLIt is a database technology that is familiar to mobile phones. Compared to a one-dimensional code (bar code) that has information only in the horizontal direction, a two-dimensional code has a display method code that has information in the horizontal and vertical directions, and more information can be coded and the print area is printed. Is also small. Since the characters of the world can be directly encoded, its use in Asia has the potential to evolve in a direction that is not currently considered.
