In response we developed banknote substrates Hybrid™ and the new Hybrid ADDvance®, to integrate cutting-edge security features across whole banknote series. Astrid Drexler, Product Manager for High-Security Paper, talks about the expansion of the Hybrid™ portfolio and how the interplay of substrates and security features can enhance efficiency across the complete cash cycle.
