"Anti'-counterfeit protection of banknotes is especially challenging. Security elements must withstand at least ten years, keep the perfect optical quality and show resistance against abrasion and other physical and chemical stress. Moreover, it must enable even common untrained users to identify genuine money, "says Petr Franc, director of Security division in IQ structures.
New IQ Structures' banknote protection portfolio includes:
• Key-holes hologram. This new element of visual anti-counterfeiting protection enables placing of a virtual image on area smaller than the image itself.
• Tools for automatic reading and automated check.
• Hologram with special visual effects, such as achromatic objects clearly visible under low-quality light
All of these measures can be integrated into single hologram. They can also be integrated with other protection technologies and adapted to specific needs of banknotes.
Robert Dvorak, the sales manager of Security division in IQ Structures, added: "Our ambition is to invent, design and deliver insuperable anti-counterfeit protection for banknotes. It is the reason we extend the capacity of our production facilities and further enhance our security. We can benefit from operating in the premises of nuclear facilities with strict security management."
