OVD to bank note standard for the high-security sector
Nanocrypt® is a fourth generation OVD (optically variable device). The sophisticated security features that can be achieved with Nanocrypt® technology cannot be simulated or reproduced using conventional techniques (analog or digital production technologies such as dot-matrix imaging). Forensic and machine-readable elements and structures are possible in addition to the visible security features.
Holograms with Nanocrypt® technology are primarily used in high-security applications such as documents, identity cards, bank notes and bonds.
