Authenticate and Secure Government Documents

Governments Require Better Authentication of Documents

With document counterfeiting, identity theft and tax evasion on the rise, the need for innovative document security solutions is a priority for governments and individuals alike. Passports, identification documents, and tax stamps all require robust anti-counterfeiting technology solutions in order to protect from counterfeits.

Our Solution

Nanotech are leaders in the authentication of government documents using leading-edge nanotechnology. Our nano-optic security features help governments protect the public from counterfeit documents using identity solutions that are high resolution, durable and can be applied onto various materials and substrates. Developed and researched in Canada, Nanotech’s nanotechnology-based solutions include movement, 3D depth, and multiple colours that are nearly impossible to reproduce. The top five anti-counterfeiting technology features for government ID are:



Based on Nanotech’s KolourOptik® nano-optic display technology, KolourDepth™ security features deliver movement, 3D depth, and multiple colours that offer a wide array of custom design options to capture and hold the user’s attention, and deliver reliable authentication of documents.

KolourDepth security foils and stripes utilize anti-counterfeiting technology that is easy to trigger and intuitive to authenticate. The combination of patented nano-scale origination, proprietary algorithms, and specialized nano-fabrication techniques result in a unique security feature that is nearly impossible to reproduce or reverse engineer.
