Substrates – Banknote and Document Security Starts Here

We have been producing durable and cost-efficient substrates to protect against counterfeiting for more than 50 years. Traditional craftsmanship has developed into high-tech state of the art manufacturing that fulfills the exacting requirements of our customers.

Notes are exposed to many stresses: soiling, contamination and mechanical wear and damage ultimately lead to the banknotes removal from circulation. Central banks anticipate this, and have to provide replacements ahead of time, incurring replacement costs. And the authentication of worn banknotes and documents is challenging for automated processing systems. At the same time, forgers try to take advantage of third-party assets and data –passports, driver’s license papers, vouchers, and tickets are targeted in addition to banknotes.
Our banknote and security papers offer the ideal solution: robust substrates that also present a significant barrier for counterfeiters. Users can be confident that they are using a legitimate means of payment or security document – and companies reduce their risk of falling victim to product forgers. The full range of established and innovative security features can be integrated into our substrates.
