Here are some steps to help you understand the technology better. In layman’s terms of course.
We start off by designing with a user-centric approach. KolourOptik can be customized to any shape, size or colour, with details that can be viewed with the naked eye or detected via specialized equipment.
KolourOptik technology uses patented algorithms coupled with electron and ion beam technology to make hundreds of billions of extremely small holes (“nano-holes”) on virtually any material.
The nano-holes interact with light as it hits the surface of the material to create unique optical effects that can be detected by the unaided eye or using specialized equipment.
The result is an optical effect which is easy to see and interpret while providing the ultimate in 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 RGB colours to produce photo-like images
Three-dimensional properties add depth to your security image
Using light through an image to make colours appear
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.
