The security thread in banknotes serves to protect against simple colour copying. The high mechanical strength of HOSTAPHAN® films fulfils a requirement for security threads. Holograms provide additional counterfeit protection and are often integrated in the film strips in banknotes. In the manufacturing process itself, our HOSTAPHAN® films serve as process and carrier films for embossing, ink and metal layers that make up banknotes.

HOSTAPHAN® is qualified in many security applications and offers these advantages:
  • high mechanical strength
  • durability
  • consistent high quality
  • good ink adhesion
  • excellent printability
Typical applications:
  • security thread in banknotes
  • carrier film for holograms
