Gemalto launches new features for ID documents

09/12/14

Gemalto has launched Sealys Secure Surface, a new family of security features for polycarbonate identity documents that combines three different effects: light reflection, movement and tactile elements.

According to Gemalto, Sealys Secure Surface can be applied on the polycarbonate bodies of documents such as passport data pages, ID cards, healthcare cards, driver licenses, vehicle registrations, and resident permits.  It offers visual and tactile effects that allow fast and efficient document authenticity checks, while legitimate document holders benefit from greater security and swift identification procedures.

Gemalto says: “Sealys Secure Surface is designed to enhance the security of existing features such as the changeable or multiple laser image, which enables several pieces of information – typically a portrait and a number – to be seen depending on the viewing angle.

·      Sealys Lens Surface incorporates complex shapes and combinations of elements inside the changeable or multiple laser image, further strengthening the security of this graphical feature ? 

·      Sealys Optically Variable Surface provides brand-new optical elements with light reflective and animation effects, revealed by tilting a document at different angles. ? 

·      Sealys 3D Surface offers perceptible features for a polycarbonate document, such as surface embossing or Braille, with unmatched accuracy.”

"The three new innovative features can be elegantly combined to keep our customers one step ahead in the fight against fraud. They have already been implemented in a European national programme since mid-November," says Youzec Kurp, vice president of Marketing & Products, Government Programs at Gemalto. "By combining Sealys Surface with Sealys Color in Polycarbonate, a remarkable innovation that allows colour photographs to be permanently embedded into polycarbonate documents, Gemalto brings to the market a unique combination of graphical security features."
