Creo, Acucote partner on secutiry label stocks
Creo Inc. and Acucote have announced an agreement to produce security label printing stocks. The self-adhesive label stocks will combine Creo Traceless taggants into Acucote label materials.
The agreement between Creo, of Vancouver, BC, Canada, and Acucote, a pressure sensitive label stock manufacturer in Graham, NC, USA, will allow the production of official product brand authentication label stocks that target the global problem of product counterfeiting, document authentication and brand security.
The Creo Traceless marking and sensing system incorporates a patented technology that allows the creation of forensically invisible identification codes. These codes can be used for anti-counterfeiting, inventory management, product tracking and tracing, or brand authentication. Only Creo readers can detect the presence of the security taggants. In addition to product label stock, Creo taggants can be added to paper pulp or woven fibers, printing inks, copier and printer toners, varnishes, sprays, powders, paints, glass, building materials, molded or extruded plastics, molten metals, fuels, fertilizers and explosives, and other materials.
