We offer unprecedented design options with respect to motion, 3D depth and high-fidelity colour. KolourOptik enables customers to create compelling stories with unprecedented visual effects.
KolourOptik uses patented algorithms coupled with electron beam lithography to make hundreds of billions extremely small holes on a metal master. That master is used to transfer the KolourOptik effect to virtually any material.
When light hits the surface of the material modified by KolourOptik, different colours and visual effects are created depending on the viewing angle. In this way we can create high-fidelity colour with simulated depth and motion.
The result is a memorable and unique optical experience that provides uncompromising security.
Level 1 Overt Authentication
KolourOptik features are ultra-high resolution and can be viewed from long distances. These images distinctly turn ON and OFF and can be detected by the unaided eye.
Difficult to Counterfeit
The patented origination process and nano-scale technology make KolourOptik images virtually impossible to replicate or reverse engineer.
The distinct look encourages investigation and is viewable in variable light conditions and at a distance.
KolourOptik can be applied on a wide range of materials ranging from metals, plastics, acrylic, cloth, paper substrates and more.
KolourOptik images are comprised purely of nano-scale holes in refined metals – no dyes or pigments are involved.
>500,000 DPI and 50,000 PPI produces both large and small images that are ultra-high definition.
Bold, singular colours that pop
Using a blend of structural colours to produce photo-like images
Three-dimensional properties add depth to your security image
We manufacture KolourOptik images using the most advanced optical technology available. As a result, the KolourOptik features are visually unique while providing the ultimate in security.
It has taken Nanotech’s team many years to develop the entire KolourOptik process. This process requires patented algorithms, extremely skilled personnel, sophisticated multimillion-dollar equipment and class 1 clean rooms to effectively fabricate master shims while keeping security a priority.
Once built, an origination wafer can be used to produce a subsequent master shim – suitable for high-speed, large-volume production. The requirements for production and the nano-scale of this technology ensures the shim cannot be reverse engineered, thereby providing the ultimate in security.
KolourOptik technology is the first to encompass the “3 Level Conventional Security Pyramid”, Level 1 – Overt, Level 2 – Covert and Level 3 – Forensic; all-in-one product.
