Transparent KINEGRAM protecting portrait and personal data
The effective way of portrait and data protection

A transparent security element brings an optimum protection of the photograph and personal data against manipulation. The check features of the KINEGRAM appear bright under predetermined angles. The foil-based security features can be either embedded into, or laminated onto, the document.

  • Not covering personalization
  • Resilient foil product
  • Enables standard application process

Fully metallized KINEGRAM

The brilliant authentication device

The origin of the KINEGRAM technology lies in fully metallized diffractive security foils. During the foil production process, a thin layer of aluminum is thermally evaporated in a vacuum onto a carrier material. This carrier has been subject to an embossing process before, where the diffractive image is incorporated into the material, which is then made visible by the metallization.

  • Well known reliable authentication device
  • Bright shining KINEGRAM structures
  • Large range of security features

Partially metallized KINEGRAM

Advanced security for metallized solutions

In contrast to full metal coverage, partial demetallization allows for intricate design elements of the metallization, 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 element, in turn raising the barrier to counterfeiting and simulation through simpler shapes. Partially demetallized foils have become the state-of-the-art in the security foil industry today.

  • Increased security through special shapes
  • Large improvement against cut-and-paste forgeries
  • Induces creativity in design integration

KINEGRAM Combi

Combination of transpareny and metallization
Combination of transpareny and metallization
The ideal combination of portrait protection and authentication

A new feature with both transparent KINEGRAM and metallized KINEGRAM ZERO.ZERO within one single KINEGRAM PCI patch.
Through the improved security of the combination of transparency and metallization a combi foil is the optimum protection against manipulation of the photograph and personal data. The foil-based security features can be either embedded into or laminated onto the document.

  • The ideal combination of portrait protection and document authentication
  • New option to link laser personalized data with metallization
  • The classical way for upgrades; from transparent KINEGRAM to KINEGRAM Combi

KINEGRAM ZERO.ZERO

High-end partial metallized KINEGRAM. The KINEGRAM ZERO.ZERO technology allows unique and best-in-class fine-line metallized movements
High-end partial metallized KINEGRAM. The KINEGRAM ZERO.ZERO technology allows unique and best-in-class fine-line metallized movements
The unique metallization-on-demand solution for best-in-class security and attractivness

KINEGRAM ZERO.ZERO is the brand name of the unique metallization technology developed and produced by OVD Kinegram AG. With this technology diffractive design elements such as optically variable fine-lines are in perfect register to the metallization. This cannot be achieved by using commercially-available de-metallization processes. Thanks to the high resolution metallization technology, KINEGRAM elements can be integrated more easily into the security printing thus enabling the document designer to achieve higher levels in document security. In addition, the diffractive metallized elements of the KINEGRAM ZERO.ZERO appear much brighter than conventional transparent (HRI) products.

  • High-precision partial metallization through the unique KINEGRAM technology
  • Maximum briliance combined with a predetermined transparency
  • The ideal technology for the Integration of a design with security print
