Security labels on refrigerant

Noting that “counterfeit refrigerants pose a global threat, could be unsafe for use, and could pose quality issues for your business…” and even more significantly may threaten loss of life, DuPont has begun a new anti-counterfeiting initiative targeted at “stopping counterfeiters in their tracks.”
The program is multi-faceted and will use many technologies to guarantee the integrity of their product and brand name. The company is expanding the program globally throughout 2012, and all packaging operations globally will ultimately use the new security label.

The new label, called “Izon,”enables the purchaser or user to quickly verify that the product is genuine. The security label offers immediate visual verification; just count the dots. But the ten dots on the label cannot be viewed at the same time – to ensure that the container is genuine, tilt the security label to view one dot on the left edge, two on the right, three on the top, and four on the bottom. Dots should appear and disappear on each side of the security label as it is tilted.

DuPont developed and patented this label and reminds customers that this is not a simple foil hologram; if the dots don’t appear and vanish as you change angle, be suspicious.
