TSSI teams up with Regula and Luminescence UK

30/11/06

 

Luminescence UK, Regula and TSSI Systems have joined forces to launch a range of security products.

The first product developed through the Regula and Luminescence partnership is the QFX secure ink and QFX reader. The QFX reader is now available in the UK through TSSI Systems, and this will coincide with the sale of QFX secure ink from Luminescence. According to the companies, the QFX secure ink and reader combination operate together to check the authenticity of a document by examining the security features within the QFX ink.

QFX secure ink produces four different colours (yellow, red, blue and green) from one printed ink. Although the ink is invisible in normal light, it fluoresces under UV light displaying:

  • Yellow/green in 254mm short-wave UV light;
  • Red in 313mm mid-wave UV light;
  • Blue in 365nm long-wave UV light;
  • Green in 980nm upper infrared light.

The solution, which is designed for passports and ID documents, enables governments to have four levels of security in one printing application.

The companies say the narrow bandwidth of each colour and the distinctiveness of each shade make QFX ink extremely difficult to replicate.
