not an answer but perhaps a nudge towards an answer
Explanation:
Could your text be refering to a sector standard set or created by the Avery Dennison Corporation? (Or the Dennison Manufacturing Co.?)
Or a method of measurement that has become an industry standard invented by one of the above or by a Mr. Dennison?
Given the capital letter, it is almost certainly a proper name.

I believe, but am not certain, there is a process involved in adding watermarks to paper that uses Dennison wax...

BTW, I have also run into "Dennison tagging" but in a completely different context (tagging fish) so I have my doubts as to that one.

I hope this helps a bit... and that someone can suggest something better and more definite.
