Clariant possesses a long-established experience about pigments for use in security printing. We ensure the high quality consistency, long-term availability and strict confidentiality that are paramount in this business.
Products recommended for this application are high performance pigments which offer the requested high fastness towards light and media such as alkali, acid, soap and other solvents.
Clariant offers additional security features with Cartax®, a unique specialty range allowing a profound fluorescent effect. In normal daylight conditions, Cartax is virtually invisible on paper. The very distinct yellow- green fluorescence of high intensity becomes visible only on exposure to UV-A light.
