NanoMatriX offers a diversity of security pigments that are widely used as strong covert and forensic security features to assist authentication of high value documents and products.

Distinctive solutions for protecting products and documents

NanoMatriX provides MatriX-Mark™ Taggant Pigments that consists of inorganic luminescent particles, which convert incoming invisible light to another type of invisible light. The emitting light can only be measured with a customized detector.

The MatriX-Mark™ security pigments are much more secure compared to conventional IR upconverter pigments, as they cannot be detected by using an IR pen. How can a counterfeiter counterfeit a security feature, if they do not know how to detect the MatriX-Mark™ security feature?

Unique forensic security features can be integrated into each delivery of the covert taggant portfolio. The forensic security feature can be verified via standard laboratory tests in local or international laboratories.

MatriX-Mark™ Taggant Pigments are invisible to the naked eye yet easy and reliably to inspect with custom-built detectors. In addition, these pigments can be used in all ink colors and are compatible with all printing technologies including intaglio, flexo, screen, gravure, offset printing or inkjet, that can be used in a wide range of applications.
