VANCOUVER, British Columbia, March 09, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nanotech Security Corp. (TSXV: NTS) (OTCQX: NTSFF) (“Nanotech” or the “Company”), a leader in the development of secure and visually memorable nano-optic security features used in the government and banknote and brand protection markets, announces the launch of LiveOptik™ PROTECT security foil – a security foil designed specifically for the brand protection industry.
LiveOptik PROTECT foil features a seamless, uniquely secure, photorealistic lock design that engages consumers while protecting the brand. The security foil has been designed with input from channel partners and is offered as an in-stock wallpaper design in a bulk roll format. Channel partners can easily convert the foils into various finished offerings and market them directly to their customer base. Custom designs are also available.
Containing up to 16 million distinct colours, LiveOptik PROTECT images are produced with nano-optic structures, all without the need for inks or dyes. The foil delivers unique multi-image, on-off visual effects that are easy to validate, making it an exceptional indicator of product authenticity and an excellent anti-counterfeit solution.
“Our new LiveOptik PROTECT security foil was designed with direct input from some of the brand market’s leading authorities,” said President and CEO Troy Bullock. “Its vivid image switch effect provides unparalleled security for companies looking to protect their brand and the bulk roll format enables channel partners to seamlessly add LiveOptik PROTECT foil to their customer offerings. Initial discussions with channel partners are very encouraging and we anticipate orders this year.”
The security foil is broadly supported across a wide range of material substrates and application processes, including overprinting, high-strength adhesives, and tamper-evident materials. LiveOptik PROTECT was intentionally designed for easy integration and maximum flexibility. It is also highly durable with chemical resistance, delamination resistance, water resistance, and scuff resistance.
