About Nanotech Security

Nanotech Security Corp. has been a leading innovator in the design and commercialization of advanced security products and solutions for a number of years. Nanotech’s KolourOptik® and Plasmogram® are nanotechnology based product platforms originally inspired by the unique optical properties of the iridescent wings of the Blue Morpho Butterfly. Nanotech images produce intense, high definition OVDs (optically variable devices) that are ideal for brand authentication and for distinguishing currency, documents, personal identification, consumer electronics, and more from counterfeiters. KolourOptik® creates unique, easy to authenticate images through interaction of natural light with nano-sized arrays of surface indentation structures which are on the order of a billionth of a meter in size. These nanostructures create vivid colour images, activated by a simple tilt or rotation, with higher resolutions than the best LED-displays.
