Compromising product packaging can cost you a lot of money. We, therefore, suggest you consider your product packaging seriously.

 

If you are a manufacturer of bottled products, then you must use robust packaging. And your packaging must be secure and smart. It should be such that the contents of your bottled product remain safe and consumable until they reach your end consumer.

 

Poorly packaged bottled products are prone to spillage, counterfeiting, and tampering. When damaged products reach your end consumers, it spoils your brand’s reputation ultimately impacting your sales.  

 

Amongst all the packaging solutions for bottled products, induction seal wads are the most commonly used. Wads can be beneficial in multiple ways and using the right wads can boost your business growth. Let’s dive deeper to know all about these amazing packaging solutions used generally in FMCG, Pharma, Agro, and Automotive industries.

 

Holostik provides different variants of induction sealing wads available as per the requirement of your product and its contents

What are holographic seal wads and its uses?

Holographic Induction seals, wads, or liners are used to seal and close the opening/lip/orifice of the bottle. This protects the product’s contents from moisture, contaminants, and bacteria. Holographic induction wads prevent counterfeiting, create genuine brand identity, ensure digital product authentication, and help manage inventory.

What holographic induction seal wads are made of?

Induction wads are made with paper board, wax, holographic film, aluminum, and poly.

During the seal application process, bottle caps are lined with the induction seal and passed under an electric current. The foil heats up and melts the wax after which the sealing material is bonded permanently to the opening of the container while the carrier material/ paper board remains inside the cap.

Why prefer holographic wads over generic wads

General wads lack security features. They can be easily copied. This risks the security of your products. With the easy availability of packaging machines, forgers can easily copy bottles, its contents, and even the packaging. But, with the addition of holography, it becomes nearly impossible to replicate packaging wads. Moreover, the use of nano optical hologram images completely deters forgers from copying your packaging. Holostik’s holographic wads can include logos, brands, and sophisticated designs that accentuate your visual appeal.

Integration of holographic wads with digital solutions

Our holographic wads can be printed with QR codes. This amplifies the functionality of these physical packaging solutions. Smart wads ensure digital authentication, track and trace, loyalty management, warranty management, and much more. It helps the manufacturer to keep a track of product inventory, raw material utilization, and location. Equipped with real-time data insights, manufacturers can make informed decisions, increase throughput, and save money.

Induction sealing wads are used seal containers and preserve its contents from degradation or contamination caused due to exposure to air, moisture, or any other unwanted impurity.

Because it is impossible to remove and reapply the wads without leaving visible evidence, induction sealing wads also prevent product tampering or adulteration.

The Process of Applying Induction Sealing Wads

An induction current is formed and transferred through a conducting aluminium foil disc present in the induction sealing wad, heating it up, after the containers have been filled and capped. A layer of the polymer film is laminated to the aluminium disc, which melts and clings to the mouth of plastic or glass containers to create an airtight seal. It just takes a few seconds for the process to finish, and neither the container nor its contents are impacted by temperature variations.

Induction Sealing Wads Come in Two Varieties

The container’s cap or closure is independent of the induction sealing wad. The wads come in a variety of shapes and sizes, but they are all typically multi-layered. In general, they can be divided into the following categories:

Cap Sealing Wads

  1. Single Piece Sealing Wads

A single item of Sealing Wads is screwed around the container mouth and inserted into the cap of the container. These capped containers have been designed to work with an induction heat sealer. As the threaded cap on the bottle applies the necessary pressure, the sealing layer clings to the bottle and creates a perfectly sealed surface.

  1. Two-piece sealing wads

Two-piece sealing wads are made from an upper and a lower layer of paperboard (that may be glued to the cap). The following layer is wax, which is used to adhere an aluminium foil layer to the paperboard. A polymer film is laminated to the foil at the lowermost layer. The container is passed over an induction coil, which creates an oscillating electromagnetic field after the cap or closure is screwed on the container. The conductive aluminium foil begins to heat up as the induction coil heats up.

 

The wax melts and is absorbed into the paperboard layer, allowing the foil to be loosened from the cap. The polymer film also warms up and pours over the container’s lip. When the polymer cools, it forms a bond with the container, resulting in an airtight seal. When the induction seal is removed from the mouth of the container, two-piece sealing wads are used to leave some sort of a secondary seal in the cap to prevent leakage.

Capless Sealing Wads

Capless sealing wads are used on the containers or bottles that are meant for single use. The cap seals that are applied to the containers are only limited to providing a spill-proof seal to the container.

Advantages of Using Induction Sealing Wads

  1. Tamper-proof

The container’s mouth seal cannot be removed and replaced without leaving visible signs of tampering. It also aids to distinguish genuine products from imposters with similar appearances.

  1. Preventing and protecting against leaks

The use of induction sealing wads to prevent leakage and improve shelf life is common in the food and beverage sector. To prevent liquid chemical items from spilling over other shipments, it is often necessary to seal them before transportation.

  1. Freshness 

Induction sealing wads prevent contaminants in the environment from contaminating food products, and can even extend their shelf life.

  1. Anti-pilferage measures

When induction sealing wads are removed, they cannot be replaced without leaving a trace of the original wad on the container’s mouth. It aids in determining whether or not there has been any pilferage. Pharmaceutical businesses, in fact, desire to buy wads that leave film or foil remains on containers as a deterrent to tampering or counterfeiting.

  1. Long-term viability

In some cases, using induction sealing wads decreases container weight. The seal provides enough security to eliminate the requirement for a robust neck/closing.

Shoe lovers swear by Adidas shoes

Many times, it’s impossible to identify fake Adidas shoes. This is because counterfeits look exactly like genuine ones. At a first glance, it might look like you are holding an original shoe but looking closer reveals that the item is fake.

Fake Adidas shoes are rampant in the market

Adidas is one of the top-notch athletic apparel companies in the world. The brand provides the best quality and has earned a massive global reputation.

Beware of fake Adidas shoes. Buy genuine ones

Counterfeiters or forgers try their best to mimic authentic Adidas products. But it is impossible to copy all the features. Here are 6 tips from our anti-counterfeit experts to differentiate between fake and original Adidas shoes.

5 Tips to check fake Adidas shoes

Tip 1: Check out the heel tag on the back of a pair of Adidas shoes

Fake shoes have a stitched triangular pattern at the point where the upper layer meets the second layer of leather on the heel. Genuine Adidas shoes do not have such faults.

Tip 2: Genuine products don’t have features for granted

New Adidas shoes come with extra laces that are neatly rolled and sealed in a plastic bag whereas, fakes will have them loosely packed.

Tip 3: All genuine Adidas products have serial numbers on the tags affixed to them

The tags have the size and product information on the inside of the shoe (behind the tongue). Real Adidas shoes will have tags with different serial numbers for the left and right shoe, but a fake product will have the same serial number. THAT’S THE CATCH.

Tip 4: Stitching is one of the aspects which need close observation

Real Adidas items are uniformly and neatly stitched. Fake ones will have shoddy and loose stitch work. Uneven stitching often makes it easy to spot a fake Adidas product.

Tip 5: Last but not the least, price is one of the most important factors in determining the genuineness of an Adidas item

It’s easy to cross-check the updated prices of different products on the Adidas website. A high difference in values can point to the fact that the product is fake.

Is the shoe price too good to be true

While you must pay attention to the above-shared tips, manufactures must use secure packaging to deter forgers from copying their products.

Also, check for hidden signs in the packaging or product labels 

 

Notice the quality and printing of packaging. Any sign of typos, spelling errors, or poor printing is a major sign of a fake item. Check for the presence of labels, holograms, and QR codes.
