UV/IR INKS

Overview

UV IR though a legacy security printing method, variations and new advances in the technology have kept this solution in use today. Traditionally an effective method favored by government entities for bank notes or passports, it has expanded to many private sector uses.

Why Pagemark?

  1. UV inks provide a value in their ability to be used in a wide variety of materials beyond secure paper and standard media types
  2. Invisible inks are another weapon in the arsenal of security printing techniques effective against counterfeiting, copying and forgery. During the security printing process, text, images or specific designs are printed on secure paperusing special inks. The images will only be visible on the original paperso a copy, when viewed under special lighting or exposed to certain chemicals, will not display the hidden images
  3. With forgery and other type of fraud prevalent around governent secured documents, UV IR technology is continually being updated to keep ahead of the counterfeiters
  4. Many security standards include UV IR technology to provide copy protection, alteration, and cannibilization

Benefits:
