Dubai: The ENOC Group subsidiary Emirates Gas and Emarat have introduced a new seal for LPG cylinders that will add to the safety of users and maintains the availability of authentic products.

The unified Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) seal has various new elements, including colour, material, position of the hologram and a unique serial number along with tamper-proof features.

“Introducing the new seal for LPG cylinders is one of several measures we undertake to curb attempts which threaten the safety of customers, employees and members of the community,” said Saif Humaid Al Falasi, Group CEO, ENOC.

Green in colour, the new seal carries the hologram of Emirates Gas and Emarat, each with a unique serial number positioned horizontally on the shrink seal to mitigate any illegal distribution of LPG cylinders by unauthorised distributors.

Unlike the old LPG cylinder seal, the new seal is equipped with an aluminium foil cap which is impossible to duplicate and reuse after it is unpacked once.

With the launch of its unified seal, Emirates Gas and Emarat urge customers to buy LPG cylinders only from authorised distributors and ensure the seal is intact and only cut in front of them after the purchase is made.

Customers should also request a validated VAT invoice from the distributor for each transaction as per the UAE Government regulations, which can be used as proof if any complaint needs to be raised.
