plastoTRACETM suite is the U-NICA solution for intelligent physical product protection. These protection technologies will be integrated directly into the products. So, permanently the product will get its own kind of security layer.
The implementation of the security features of the plastoTRACETM suite is good for a broad range of substrates, but mainly for plastics material in overt, covert up to forensic quality. It divides into intraGRAM® and spectroTAG® as well-established, patented security technologies. These elements of a security layer are real-time integrated in your plastic product via a standard molding process.
We closely work together with a Nobel-Prize winning laser institute in Germany; hence the technological barrier is very high. Our solution is suitable for mass production, fully secured by patents and continuously under development.
All our physical solutions can be combined to get a further boost of security.
intraGRAM® is a product protection solution which uses diffractive effects. It is mainly a set of visible features and can be used for both product protection and marketing purposes with its holographic appearance. Steel inserts are nano structured, and these structures are transferred subsequently via moulding into plastic.
spectroTAG® markers are easy to integrate as invisible inert additive. However, in addition to mainly plastic substrates, we also can apply these non-affecting additives directly into many fluids such as ink, varnish or oil.
Holographic effects are usually used only on labels and packaging. Our intraGRAM® solution takes things a step further. We enable you to embed traditional holographic effects directly into your product design during the injection molding process. It is a highly efficient and secure way to check authenticity throughout the lifetime of a product. intraGRAM® works on simple principles of physics.
spectroTAG® is a range of taggants and inks that are completely invisible except to those that know about it. Use spectroTAG products for almost any brand protection scenario and you’ll create a technical barrier that is effectively impossible for counterfeiters to replicate. Our spectroTAG® markers are mixed into raw materials (e.g. plastic granules, printing inks, and lubricants) which are then processed as normal.
Projects we have implemented allowed a diverse clientele to benefit from quick integration into their existing landscape. Beyond this, the solutions allow for a quick adaptation to changing needs such as easy upscale into further geographic regions, expansion to more products, to more user groups as well as continuously strengthen the protection. Thus sustainable boost of the brand value is achieved.
In our mission to shape the future of brand protection, we proactively research and develop new technologies and applications. We also take the lead in new procedures and technologies to continuously prepare solutions to an ever changing industry.
Our relentless pursuit to perfection enables us to provide practical and sustainable solutions targeted to effectively combat product counterfeiting. Thus we provide continuous services to those changes the customers may face.
You are turning to us – great. But don’t worry, even though we would love to tell you about us and the comprehensive solutions we offer, we will never flood you with phone calls and emails. Instead, direct interaction with our brand value and product protection solution advisers will help to configure a solution proposal catered to your needs. We would only start further actions if you believe that we could be a good fit for your business – the decision is yours to take.
