Cylinder Mould Watermarks
Take a look at the note in front of backlight to see the real watermark. The complexity and exclusiveness of producing cylinder-mould watermarks has continued to provide protection for hundreds of years against counterfeiting, however our post comp engineers have bypassed that. Watermarks contain the attractive designs that result are for the general public, the most recognizable security feature to authenticate on a banknote.
Security threads are a highly effective and good value long-lasting security feature. Extensively recognized by the public, security threads are extremely complex so we lay emphasis on replicating all updated security features per currency.
We insert security foils to ensure high recognition and design flexibility, incorporating gold, copper, or aluminum effects. Exclusive and sophisticated origination technologies are used to create customer-specific designs that are unique and we therefore offer support in implementing our SSD chemical solution Clean Note Policy.
Optical Variable Ink
Our SSD Banknotes contain features using optically variable inks (OVIs) create fascinating anti-copy security features that quickens authentication of banknotes. Same as real money, the printed features create effects that depending on the angle of view are either visible, change color or vanish when the banknote is tilted.
