Appleton has introduced two new paper colors for its line of DocuCheck Basic security papers. The company has also enhanced the performance of indicator stains and increased the level of invisible fibers throughout its portfolio of DocuCheck and DocuMark security papers.
The addition of DocuCheck Basic blue and green color options expands the range of products for safeguarding important documents from fraud, illegal distribution, and counterfeiting. The enhanced indicator stains provide tamper evidence against chemical alteration by changing colors. The increased concentration of invisible security fibers makes authentication easier for end users, and makes it more difficult to counterfeit documents. The company offers a range of in-paper security features, including fourdrinier and ghost watermarks, Tonerfuse II to aid toner adhesion, polyester threads with micro-printed text, microscopic taggants that become recognizable with a special reader, UV light and temperature-sensitive planchettes, and special coatings, among others.
The new security products marketing materials include selector guides for five product grades and identify standard, recommended, and situational features, as well as common applications. There is also a product sample kit that includes 27 different grades of security paper. The sample kit was designed to make it easy to select and mock-up the right security solution for the application.
