Ultra-Covert Pigments: New Class of Covert & Forensic Security

Ultra-covert pigments are advanced security pigments that protect documents of value and products against counterfeiting:

  • Provide maximum covert protection against counterfeits 
  • Pigments can be applied in all ink colors, suitable for all printing technologies
  • Unique-custom-formulated forensic security features can be added on request
  • An array of different taggant types available
  • Mobile detectors available for easy in-field inspection

NanoMatriX helps firms protect their products and documents against counterfeiting threats by providing a tailor-made authentication system with unique, ultra-covert pigments that can be used in a wide range of applications.

Better solution, elevated protection

NanoMatriX offers ultra-covert pigments, encompassing inorganic luminescent particles, which convert incoming invisible light to another invisible light, which can only be measured with a customized detector. Ultra-covert pigment particles can neither be detected by a laser beam emitted by an IR laser pen nor by conventional taggant detectors.
