Molecular tracers provide security for flexible and rigid plastic packaging
Designed for traceability in food, beverage, drug and cosmetic packaging, Ampacet’s AmpaTrace molecular tracers add distinct security signatures to packaging components used by consumer package goods companies.
The tracers allow flexible and rigid plastic packaging to be evaluated at points in the supply chain including the retail store level. AmpaTrace technology varies the type, proportion and concentration of special compounds in Ampacet masterbatches to create fingerprints that are readily measured by visual, audible, or standard laboratory analytical tools. Depending on the type of security needed, AmpaTrace molecular tracers can include UV-activated, ferromagnetic, infrared, and other components.
