Microtaggant Identification Particles

Microtaggant®
Identification Particles

Tap into this solution, which is encoded exclusively for your application, like a fingerprint.

Uniquely encoded for your application

Microtaggant Identification Particles have multiple levels of security within each particle. These microscopic particles contain multiple color layers, which translate to a numeric code.  In addition to this base structure, we can add other materials to the Microtaggant to aid in location and authentication. Whether you’re seeking a UV light, IR laser or magnetic response, Microtaggant Identification Particles can help you create the response—and extra security—you want. There’s a virtually unlimited number of unique numeric codes that can be created.

Microtaggant is extremely economical for bulk-tagging applications—application costs might be even less expensive than standard phosphors.

HOW MicROTAGGANT CAN HELP

It allows you to easily and accurately confirm your product is your product, putting you in a superior position to protect your brand by:

  • Authenticating your product with multiple visible color responses
  • Choosing covert or overt level of security
  • Combating grey marketing and diversion
  • Identifying counterfeits
  • Reduce unauthorized production from manufacturer over runs
  • Handling false liability and warranty issues
  • Confirming time and location of manufacture

Microtaggant can be incorporated into most materials

Microtaggant Identification Particles are available in a range of particle sizes—from 20 to 1,200 microns—so they can be incorporated into a wide range of materials. Incorporating Microtaggants throughout your product enables a high level of security. Use Microtaggant in materials like:

  • Plastics, including acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), acrylic, polypropylene, polyethylene, polystyrene, polycarbonate, polyetheretherketone or other materials you already use
  • Bulk materials, including liquids, particles and solids
  • Labels
  • Standard polyester or nylon multifilament security yarns, which can be used in woven labels, fabrics and ribbons
  • Synthetic paper, like PPG TESLIN®
  • Explosives

Quick and easy authentication

Microtaggant technology enables employees or investigators to do on-the-spot, non-destructive field testing, providing positive, instant identification and verification of materials with inexpensive readers and detectors such as microscopes, UV lights and laser pens.
