Spectral Taggant

Spectral Taggant™ System

Protect yourself with a proprietary solution that combines advanced chemistry with a sophisticated reader.

Common uses for Spectral Taggant Systems

Spectral Taggant ink is well suited to be printed on a variety of substrates. It’s delivered as press-ready ink using proprietary, multi-component chemistry that requires advanced manufacturing and synthesis specifically for security printing and high-volume applications, which benefit from anti-counterfeiting ink, like:

  • Consumer packaging
  • Banknotes
  • Currency
  • Tax revenue stamps
  • Official documents

Counterfeiters can’t easily replicate

Microtrace developed the Spectral Taggant Systems from the perspective of a counterfeiter. Safeguards make reverse engineering or replicating extremely difficult, if not impossible. Designed and manufactured in house at Microtrace, the high-quality, anti-counterfeiting Spectral Taggant System options include:

  • Spectral Taggant 1.0—detected by a sophisticated proprietary reader that’s inexpensive and easy to implement.
  • Spectral Taggant 2.0—featuring taggant chemistries designed and synthesized in house, this turnkey system is even more secure than the 1.0 offering. Spectral Taggant 2.0 is also detected by a sophisticated proprietary reader—but a level up from the 1.0 option.

OTHER OPTIONS YOU CAN IMPLEMENT INDEPENTENTLY
