According to the International AntiCounterfeiting Coalition, “the Department of Homeland Security seized over 26,000 shipments of counterfeit goods valued at over $1.3 billion at U.S. borders in Fiscal Year 2020.”

Adhesion-Based Shortcomings

What are the Cons of Other Methods?

Counterfeiting damages brand image, reputation and consumer confidence in the global market throughout
multiple industries.

Aside from counterfeiting, plastic theft accounts for $100M loss annually in the U.S. alone. Problems arise as plastics are stolen and then illegally recycled, re-processed, and sold back into the supply chain as virgin material instead of recycleate. This creates additional costs and increases the risk of safety.

Polyolefin thermoplastics are the most predominantly used plastic in the world for the manufacture of durable products (from consumer goods to automotive components and everything in between).

The performance properties making polyolefin thermo- plastics so versatile also make them problematic for common “adhesion-based” labeling methods available today. This includes branding and warning labeling to anti-theft, authentication, and anti-counterfeit labeling intended to safeguard products for life use.

“Real World” results prove that common labeling methods are continuously failing their duty (branding, warning, tracking/tracing, informative, anti-counterfeit, anti-theft, authentication, and more) on polyolefin thermoplastic products, parts, and components that are depended upon every day.

Industries that utilize these plastics are scrambling to find solutions, investing additional time, money and resources to battle the continual increase in counterfeiting and theft.

There is however a better alternative!


The Polyfuze Difference

Polymer Fusion
Technology For Anti- Counterfeit Labels

Our technology is the science of merging two separate polyolefin thermoplastic polymers together (polyolefin label + polyolefin product) utilizing melt point, time, and pressure producing a singular piece of plastic without the use of adhesives, tie layers, bonding agents, or secondary surface treatments.

Polymer Fusion Technology was specifically engineered for perfect compatibility with polyolefin thermoplastic products, parts, and components to deliver unrivaled lifelong performance.

Quality Control

Polymer Fusion Technology with D-TECT™

D-TECT™ are microscopic highly-tunable physical, optical, and magnetic crystals introduced into the polymer matrix of our Fusion Technology inks during production and printed as part of a logo, label or as an imperceptible feature to be applied onto customers products.

During application, the Polymer Fusion Label and customers polyolefin thermoplastic product, part or component simultaneously reach melt point causing a “fusion reaction.’ The result – a permanent authenticat- able mark on plastic that cannot be lifted, separated, or removed for the life of the product no matter the environment or exposure.

D-TECT crystals are impossible to reverse engineer and permanently ensure consumer safety, brand protection, and product security, as well as supply chain governance and quality control for the life of the product.

In cases of reusable plastic theft that has been ground up, shred, or converted to recycleate, invisible luminescent pigment can be added to Polymer Fusion Technology inks that can help investigators detect small fragments under blacklight or IR for identification purposes.

Polyfuze offers an industry-leading Lifetime Guarantee for all our labeling solutions. Customers can rest assured that Polymer Fusion Technology has their back.

Polymer Fusion Labeling is fully recyclable with polyolefin thermoplastic products at end-of-life use.
