Protecting consumer and industrial products against counterfeiting with unforgeable nanoscale security elements

Project description

New tech to tackle counterfeiting problem

Counterfeiting is a major global problem. No industry or business sector is immune, making the prevention of counterfeit goods a top priority. Product manufacturers demand new copy- and tamper-proof security solutions to prevent counterfeiting, making it expensive and unprofitable. The EU-funded Morphotonix project will investigate the new target market segments and develop a strategy to scale a technology that produces holographic‐like effects and hidden nanosecurity codes. The codes are inserted directly into the products during the process of plastic moulding. The technology is unique in nanoengraving on flat and curved surfaces of moulds, doesn’t affect the purity of the product, and applies to mass production of plastic-based products without prohibitive capital expenditure investments.
