CROWTHER, GBR, Sept 27, 2022- OpSec Security, a leader in on-product and online authentication and brand protection, has today launched OpSec® LazaFoil as part of its newly released OpSec® Agile range.
OpSec® Lazafoil (HSF102) is the latest laser resistant foil to be developed by OpSec. It is a versatile general purpose holographic hot stamping foil, designed for patch application on a variety of substrates. Lazafoil™ is particularly suited to those with lower volume requirements and works well when subsequent personalisation of a document (using a laser writer) is required.
Lazafoil™ is the most recent addition to the OpSec® Agile range, a suite of versatile hot stamping foils. It is supported by a rapid origination service that provides security printers with a choice of technologies, including Genus, OpSec’s proprietary electron beam (e-beam) technology. Manufactured in OpSec’s long established UK facility, this new product line is particularly attractive to UK security printers that require a proven and reliable local source of supply.
Agile™ comprises six foils, optimized for registered patch or continuous stripe applications on a variety of security substrates. Foils are compatible with the wide range of application machines used across the security print industry. OpSec’s flexible manufacturing solution means Agile™ foils can be made available fully finished in a matter of weeks, in accordance with customer needs. They can also be supplied in flexible volumes, from a few hundred to several thousand square meters.
This latest offering from OpSec is another demonstration of innovation in adapting to customer needs. Peter Waker, SVP and GM Authentication at OpSec notes, “The last few years have seen supply chains severely disrupted by a combination of Covid-19 and Brexit. The security print market has had to review its complex supply chains, and OpSec is ideally placed to support our customers in these changing times.” He adds, “We’ve been providing security foils for almost 40 years, so we have a deep understanding of our customers’ needs. Agile allows us to respond quickly to new demand, without compromising our reputation for quality and security.”
The OpSec® Agile range provides cost-effective, quick turn-around, high-quality hot stamping foils, ideal for security printers across the globe. Contact the experts at OpSec to learn more about the Agile™ foils or to request a sample or competitive quotation for your current projects.
