Authentication foils and films for high-security documents
One of the greatest challenges faced today by global governments is to ensure the ongoing protection and security of their banknote currency. Counterfeiting has grown significantly over the last decade as criminals continue to develop more advanced printing methods. The answer for governments is to ensure that the range of security features embedded within these notes are up-to-date and offer both covert and overt methods of protection.
