Our proprietary security materials offer overt, covert and forensic technologies for layering security solutions into your secure credential. This approach helps ensure that our solutions meet both your desired level of security and your budget. It also means solutions that are scalable, enabling you to quickly migrate to new technologies.
3M™ Color Floating Image Security Laminate
With 3M™ Color Floating Image Security Laminate, customized floating images appear to "float" above or "sink" below the credential surface. Two covert features — kinetic microtext embedded within the floating image and retroreflectivity — can be incorporated to provide enhanced security.
3M™ Color Floating Image Security Laminate features:
Confident and easy authentication of a secure ID card without the use of a tool
Easy integration with ID card design through customized graphics and colors
Compatibility with Teslin®substrate-based ID cards and driver's licenses
A retroreflective background and security pattern that are easy to authenticate with a viewer day or night — yet help make attempts at tampering obvious
Easy application on badges, ID cards and driver's licenses with a variety of heat-based bonds
Holographic laminate is a plastic overlay applied to the bio-data page using pressure and/or heat in order to protect data against alteration. Laminates can include holographic features for additional security.
Transparent Holographic Foil
Traditionally transparent holographic foil is the most popular type of DOVID (Diffractive Optically Variable Image Device) because of the appeal of holographic images and the transparent film, which allows for subsurface printed graphics. A number of holographic effects are possible.
Holographic foil features may include:
2D holograms with structural and color changes
3D holograms with images
Holograms with kinematic effects
Holograms with High Refractive Index Foil, created with high-resolution dot-matrix, electron beam or other lithographic techniques
