In addition to authentication, these unique Raman active taggants can be quantified for the detection of dilution and mix ratios of genuine materials. They’re uniquely encoded and completely invisible, and, because they are incorporated at trace levels, it is nearly impossible for a counterfeiter to detect and virtually impossible to replicate.
With the ability to quantify, the Molecular Taggant™ can be utilized for quality control to protect from false liability and warranty claims arising from counterfeiting, substitution and dilution of genuine materials. Real time field analysis allows for verification of materials during installation and for the life of the product.
Molecular Taggants are designed and optimized for each specific substrate and application. They are normally formulated in the base materials or ingredients of the product to be tagged.
