Secure your banknotes through cutting-edge technology

Want to build long-term trust? Reliable security is the only way. When it comes to banknotes, there can be no compromises. Which is why we are dedicated to ensuring that banknotes are given the eye-catching and durable security features they need – such as micro-mirror technology for fast and reliable authentication by just about anyone.

There is no straightforward, off-the-shelf solution for protecting a banknote. By working closely with you to determine the details of your specific security feature requirements, we can create a bespoke solution that suits your needs. The visual interplay of motifs in different security elements increases the security of the note, and it can make comparisons clearer for the user. Select your solution from a scalable product portfolio, which is applicable to a range of denominations and cash cycle requirements. Aid authentication by both people and machines, and improve security with cutting-edge yet visually stunning features. Whether watermarks, threads, foils, see-through windows, or machine-readable or printed security elements, our solutions are amplified on the banknote to create effective protection. Join central banks worldwide that entrust us with the protection of their currencies.

Let’s make your banknotes more secure.

Our solutions

Cylinder mould watermarks

Cylinder mould watermarks are fundamental, easily recognizable security elements on a banknote. We have improved technology and production, and made them even more secure.

Security threads

Perfectly embedded: essential for protection against counterfeiting whilst also ensuring a long-lasting and visually attractive solution.

Security foils

High-tech and eye-catching, these foils offer much scope for design and are difficult to copy.

Secure windows

Small secure windows in the banknote, featuring different visual effects, can be quickly authenticated whilst also representing a high barrier against counterfeiting.

Embedded covert security

Magnetics and other effects give banknotes an additional level of security: we use covert elements to better protect cash and extend its functionality.

Printed security features

The importance of printing for banknote security cannot be understated: traditional procedures, striking color pigments and technical innovations make your banknotes clearly distinguishable.
