Microtrace, LLC: Molecular taggant technology for product security
Using taggant technologies, (security labels and laser systems that are completely invisible and otherwise undetectable) new Molecular Taggants from Microtrace offer dilution detection (as low as 10% dilution) to positively identify products and materials, prevent fraud, and deter counterfeiting. have a low loading ratio, economical tagging of high volume bulk materials, are soluble for fluids, and offer standoff detection.
The technology features a low loading ratio, economical tagging of high volume bulk materials, are soluble for fluids, and offer standoff detection.
Taggants are microscopic/nano materials or chemistries that are uniquely encoded and virtually impossible to duplicate—like a fingerprint. Taggants are used for brand protection, anti-counterfeiting, and product authentication. New Microtrace Molecular Taggants offer standoff detection.
Further benefits include availablity in multiple delivery formats, the use of trace amounts, ability to detect dilution, inability to be detected and replicated by counterfeiters, and allow simple, non-destructive field testing. For all types of materials and surfaces, Molecular taggants can be delivered as formulated with customer raw material, plastic masterbatch, security ink, or as a spray carrier.
