Unique overt and covert product security

Security that offers total brand protection

Our continuous development of physical applications built on more than 200 worldwide patents offer great value and benefit to our customers.

Working across a variety of materials, including plastics, metal, carton, paper, adhesives, varnish and coatings, we’re able to bring leading-edge security features and technologies to your products.

If you’d like to discuss any of these solutions or our emerging range of applications, get in touch with us.

Physical technologies



We also specialize in developing visible security features made up of advanced optical effects and holographic structures.

The holographic structures are introduced during injection molding of a plastic part, enabling users to clearly distinguish the authenticity of the product at the point of sale.



Our substrate technologies are particularly suited to large scale organizations seeking a simple and economic way to quickly authenticate their products.

Over the last decade, we’ve developed a range of discreet markers, taggants and inks which are invisible to the unaided eye. Our covert solutions can only be visualized using a special portable reader, available only from U-NICA.




Our innovative markers and taggants are also used for forensic inspections and analysis by experts and inspectors.

The technology portfolio with special readers and devices allows a cost-effective way to identify and authenticate products in the field.

The results are robust and can be used for law enforcement and legal prosecution of violators.

Combining two worlds in one solution

Our physical technologies can be applied to products as standalone solutions or in a smart combination with our digital solutions.

Taggants can be read and visualized using a smartphone with a slim adapter - our latest innovation. Contact our sales team for more information.
