PictureTM thread : two innovations, one security thread
With the launch of PictureTM thread at the 2011 Singapore Currency Conference, Arjowiggins Security once again displayed the full range of its innovation capabilities in security solutions for banknote paper.
This is the first security thread to allow the creation of more sophisticated images in different shades of grey and it represents a major step in the battle against counterfeiting.
PictureTM thread was used commercially for the first time in May 2011 on Kazakhstan’s 1,000 tenge banknote and this is also the first time a 6mm-wide thread has been used on banknotes.
This new product consolidates both the division’s position and its ability to stay one step ahead of the market.
