Nanotech Wins LumaChrome Security Film Order for Middle Eastern Central Bank
VANCOUVER, British Columbia – September 23, 2020 – Nanotech Security Corp. (TSXV: NTS) (OTCQX: NTSFF) (“Nanotech” or the “Company”), a leader in the development of secure and memorable nano-optic security features used in the government and banknote and brand protection markets, announces an order for 156 km of LumaChrome™ colour-shifting security film to be used by a Middle Eastern Central Bank. The order is expected to be recurring business.
The LumaChrome security film has been delivered to the Company’s conversion partner for this project, where it will be converted into thread for over 200 million banknotes in two separate denominations.
“This LumaChrome film delivery for two new banknote denominations is an affirmation of our decision to expand our production facility, said President and CEO Troy Bullock. “This expansion has enhanced our capability to produce a wide range of anti-counterfeit solutions as we continue to grow our government and banknote business.”
Exclusive to the government and banknote market, LumaChrome film provides enhanced banknote security over colour-shifting ink as its colour transitions are crisp and extremely difficult to simulate, requiring sophisticated production equipment and specialized knowledge in thin-film optics to produce. It offers quick, intuitive authentication, and is easily recognizable at considerable distances, multiple viewing angles, and variable lighting conditions.
Nanotech is one of the very few suppliers in the world capable of producing such high-security colour-shifting film. The film’s impactful colour shift, simplicity, and durability have made it a standard in document and currency authentication for over two decades.
