Title: Security cover for objects, particularly for containers with closing device

Abstract: The invention relates to a security envelope (20) for an article, the envelope being constituted by a sleeve (21) of heat-shrinkable plastics material that is fitted on its inside face with a holographic element (30) and with a tear strip (22) passing behind said holographic element (30). According to the invention, the holographic element (30) is organized to be transferable onto the facing wall (13) of the article and to adhere to said wall via zones situated on either side of the tear strip (22) so as to hold a portion of said tear strip captive, such that any fraudulent manipulation of the envelope heat-shrunk onto the article has the effect of displacing the tear strip (22) and consequently of automatically and visibly destroying the transferred holographic element (30).
