KINEGRAM foil portfolio - Metallization types


Full metallization

The origin of the KINEGRAM technology: fully metallized diffractive security foils.

During the foil production process, a thin layer of aluminum is vacuum-evaporated onto a carrier material. Before the metallization, the diffractive image is embossed into the material. The silver colored aluminum makes the diffractive image visible. 

  • eye-catching large surfaces
  • easy to locate and authenticate
  • endless variety of shapes through individual stamping die geometry

Partial metallization

Partial removal of the aluminum layer allows for intricate design elements, such as microtexts or small images, to be isolated from the main design area. This enables the creation of more interesting and unusual shapes of the KINEGRAM foil element.


Partially metallized foils are the state-of-the-art in the security foil industry today.

  • highly increased design flexibility
  • highly increased anti-counterfeiting security
  • state-of-the-art for banknote security foils today

KINEGRAM ZERO.ZERO

Award-winning, unique high-precision partial metallization. The “metal on demand” process of KINEGRAM ZERO.ZERO technology enables the addition of finely detailed metallic images only where the foil's optical security effects and the design requires them.

This technology is especially suitable for projects requiring seamless integration of the foil into the overall banknote design. The results are highly brilliant metallized images with extremely high line resolution, clear movement effects, and large transparent areas.

  • perfect integration with the banknote print
  • one-of-a-kind technology for highly precise partial metallization
  • acknowledged by banknote security experts as extremely difficult to counterfeit
