    Abstract: Technologies are provided for secure sanitization of a storage device. A storage device can be configured to support an operational mode, into which the storage device is placed by default, and in which requests to cryptographically erase the storage device are rejected. The storage device can support a separate sanitization mode in which a request to cryptographically erase the storage device will be processed. Access to the sanitization mode can be restricted to trusted sources (such as a boot firmware of a computer connected to the storage device). The storage device can be configured to reject a command to place the storage device in the sanitization mode, unless the command is received during an initialization of the storage device. In at least some embodiments, the storage device can reject data access commands while it is in the sanitization mode.

  • Patent number: 9856402
    Abstract: One or more cuts is provided in a label liner sheet near the area of a cutout within the label, such as the center hole in a CD label, in order to facilitate reliable separation of the cutout from the label and retention of the cutout on the liner sheet as the label is peeled from the liner. The majority of the cut runs generally parallel to the cutout boundary underneath the cutout, and the ends of the cut cross the boundary at two separate boundary crossing points on either side of the portion of the cut running parallel to the boundary. The cut first causes a flap to be created in the liner sheet and partially lifted as the label is beginning to be peeled away. Thereafter, as the peel line passes the flap area, the cutout experiences the full retentive strength of the label's pressure sensitive adhesive primarily at the two boundary crossings, and the cutout is pulled from the label and retained on the liner sheet as the adhesive force overcomes the cohesive force.

    Abstract: Forms that can be used to make stickers easily on demand, wherein the stickers are of the type in which a face of the sticker that bears printed information (graphic, textual, bar code, security, and/or other) also bears an adhesive that is used to affix the sticker to a desired substrate. A carrier sheet supports a sticker body and an adhesive source. The sticker body and the adhesive are initially separated on the form. The sticker face and the adhesive are registrably positioned with respect to a fold line. This allows the adhesive to be transferred to the sticker face on demand by an easy, desirably manual process that involves folding the form along the fold line. When the form is unfolded, the sticker can be removed and applied to the desired substrate.

    Abstract: The present invention relates to an adhesive-backed printed pressure sensitive cut label assembly with easy temporary removability, wherein the portion of the label forming the label stock may be printed on the back- or reverse-side of the label face stock and whereby the printed surface is applied with a hot melt or acrylic adhesive that ensures easy short-term removability from a container surface and reapplication thereto. The label stock is laminated to a base stock comprising a paper or polymeric release liner coated with silicone or other adhesive release coating. During manufacturing of the label assembly, the label stock and base stock are simultaneously fed to laminating rollers following a die-cutting process, whereby the two are joined. One feature of the invention is the ease of temporary removability after application to the surface of a container whereby there is no adhesion of the ink printed on the label to the container surface itself.

  • Patent number: 8777271
    Abstract: A linerless duplex label system is operable to print and apply a linerless duplex label to a substrate. A plurality of linerless duplex labels are provided and each label includes a single-ply stock with top and bottom faces. The label also includes an endless adhesive border applied to the bottom face. The adhesive border is an unactivated, selectively activatable adhesive, such labels are overlaid on one another without any substantial adhesion therebetween. Each label may essentially be freely removed from the others, and the adhesive may thereafter be activated so that the label can be adhesively applied to the substrate.

    Abstract: Reusable, PSA labels and related methods. Some labels comprise a layer of PSA and an information layer. The PSA layer defines bond and exposed surfaces wherein the exposed surface is removable and bondable to contact surfaces. Additionally, the information layer defines exposed and bond surfaces wherein the exposed surface is able to receive a (removable) marking. The information layer is bonded to the layer of PSA. Labels can comprise Braille structures on the exposed surfaces of the information layer. Some reusable PSA labels comprise an intermediate adhesive layer so that the bonding is via the intermediate layer. If desired, the bond surfaces of the PSA layers can be on a sub-layer of the PSA layers and can have flow temperatures of no more than about 300 degrees Fahrenheit. Moreover, labels can have PSA layers that remain flexible at a temperature of about 20 degrees Fahrenheit.

  • Publication number: 20140090226
    Abstract: An IV bag/line safety device including a tag set and a bag attacher removably connected to the tag set. The tag set includes a plurality of tags printed with the name of an IV solution. The bag attacher is configured to attach the safety device to an IV bag containing the IV solution printed on the tags. After attachment, the safety device provides visual cues to a user inviting the user to disconnect the tags from the safety device. After disconnecting one or more of the tags, the user may attach those tags to an IV tubing line connected to the IV bag through which the IV solution contained in the IV bag flows from the IV bag into a patient. This enables the user to quickly identify a given IV tubing line having at least one tag attached thereto as containing a particular IV solution.
