Enhanced Phosphors

Enhanced Phosphors

When widely available phosphors won’t cut it, Enhanced Phosphors offer a highly secure option.

How enhanced phosphors can help

Typically, phosphors are used as a flood coat—multiple colors can’t be used together. With Microtrace’s Enhanced Phosphors, individual particles remain separated, so they can be color mixed for an extremely unique visible effect.

In addition to standard IR-to-visible phosphor response, Microtrace’s Enhanced Phosphors are also responsive to UV light. This allows for single particles to have multiple, distinct visible-color responses when triggered with an IR laser and UV illumination. The addition of a custom Microtaggant code provides a highly secure and covert means of authentication.

A Microtrace original

This up-converting phosphor is a highly secure option as a powder, plastic masterbatch or label that is only available through Microtrace. Enhanced Phosphor is commonly used in plastics parts and adhesives because it’s an easy-to-use option with inexpensive detection.

Microtrace also offers additional options for phosphors you can implement independently:
