Taggant Security Inks

Security inks are not all made equally.
The highest quality security inks are formulated with taggants.

Spectral Taggant Security Ink

Spectral Taggant™ Security InkMicrotrace’s Spectral Taggant is a security ink specifically for print applications. When developing the Spectral Taggant, Microtrace did so from the perspective of a counterfeiter. Safe guards were put in place to make reverse engineering or replicating extremely difficult if not impossible. Microtrace’s Spectral Taggant is a proprietary chemistry requiring advanced manufacturing and synthesis. They are designed and manufactured in house by Microtrace.

Microtrace’s proprietary Spectral Reader is a sophisticated hand held device which gathers hundreds of data points per reading to ensure an exact match to the Spectral Taggant signature. Even a small change in the substrate or printing technique could lead to a failed reading. This level of accuracy is required to ensure the detector cannot be fooled by even the most determined counterfeiter.

With the Microtrace proprietary spectral taggant and reader, you can be confident you have a very secure solution.
