Counterfeit protection in the plastics industry

The protection against counterfeiting of films, packaging and products is an increasing factor in the plastic film industry.

The use of conventional packaging to protect against counterfeiting can be achieved with little effort using optical control systems. The detection of counterfeits using smartphones forms a new, faster and more efficient way without high investment costs, less memory usage and without an internet connection.

Afterglow pigments (10 ppm) used in the packaging can be recorded in various wave spectra with the smartphone and statistically evaluated. This data is stored offline and can be assigned when the product is viewed again due to the unique pigment arrangement. Counterfeiting is excluded from this point in time.

We would be happy to demonstrate our development to you.
