Examine and characterize the detectability of the microtaggant in the paint at multiple concentrations of microtaggant.
Quantify the density of visible microtaggant particles in the paint at multiple concentrations of microtaggant.
technology is widely regarded as a means of preventing counterfeiting, but according to Microtrace this is not its main purpose.
Security Inks are formulated with encoded particles that are certified and registered to each customer or application.
The Microtrace Microtaggant
technology is the most robust, traceable, anti-counterfeit technology available.
Enhancements are said to make it "the most robust traceable, anti-counterfeit technology available." Microtrace explains that, in its basic form, the microtaggant
is a unique numeric code sequence in a multiple colored layer format.
Livesay acquired the license for Microtaggant
from 3M in 1985 and formed his own company to manufacture it.
inks offer a high level of product protection.
Security Inks allow any printer to apply the anti-counterfeit technology to any printed materials using flexographic or screen printing.
and mechanical micro imprints can be administered to the film coating and identified using special equipment.
JDSU has developed a range of products to meet the needs of the FMCG market--its third vertical--including Charms[TM] Microtaggants
that can be incorporated in commercial inks and varnishes.
. Microtrace offers a technology, originally developed by 3M, by which numerically coded microscopic particles are embedded into labels and other documents and materials.
You say the Swiss have successfully used microtaggants
in solving 559 bombing cases since 1984.
The press can also be configured to incorporate security technologies such as microtaggants
, RFID chips, chemicals, UV fibers, and others.
Among the most common are pigments that can be either clear or colored; invisible ultraviolet dye that when held to light can expose an imprint in customizable colors; a chemical that activates when another substance is applied to it; and microtaggants
. The chemicals can be applied via paint, polymer, solvent, or ink and to virtually any surface.
