The origin of the KINEGRAM technology: fully metallized diffractive security foils.
During the foil production process, a thin layer of silver aluminum is thermally evaporated in a vacuum onto a carrier material. Before the metallization, the diffractive image is embossed into the material. The silver aluminum makes the diffractive image visible.
- eye-catching large surfaces
- easy to locate and authenticate
- different shapes achievable through individually formed stamping dies
Partial removal of the aluminum layer allows for intricate design elements, such as small texts or 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
Award-winning, unique high-precision partial metallization. The “metal on demand” process of KINEGRAM ZERO.ZERO technology enables you to add 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
