Innovative foil developments with KINEGRAM


Transparent KINEGRAM

The effective way of portrait and data protection
  • Not covering personalization
  • Resilient foil product, robust security hologram
  • Enables standard application process

Fully metallized KINEGRAM

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

Partially metallized KINEGRAM

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

KINEGRAM Combi

The invincible combination of security and design
  • 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 HDM - High Definition Metallization

KINEGRAM HDM is a new metallization technology with unsurpassed resolution of the metallic areas. Using line widths down to 10-15 microns, sophisticated design patterns, fine-line elements, symbols or text/letters can be realised. This new high resolution process can be used in Combi format as a higher-security alternative to the current KINEGRAM Combi which is produced using the standard metallization. Going far beyond the possibilities of standard security holograms, this unique technology opens up new dimensions in security design.

  • Metallized security design elements only attainable using HDM
  • Full range of metallized transparency from 5% to 95%
  • New unique 2nd – level security features (not commercially available).
  • Suitable for upgrades from conventional metallization to high resolution metallization



KINEGRAM ZERO.ZERO

The unique metallization solution for best-in-class security and visual attractiveness

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 for security holograms. 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
