ABnote North America Introduces DuoChrome Ink
Boston-based ABnote North America introduced DuoChrome Ink. Exclusively offered by the company, the patented technology is designed to make the ink visible as one color in traditional (natural or incandescent) light and another contrasting color when viewed under fluorescent light.
While new to the plastic card industry, the technology is currently used in the gaming industry to help authenticate casino chips and dice. Verification of DuoChrome Ink does not require any special equipment, and provides a quick and easy way to authenticate print by simply changing the source of light. The ink cannot be reproduced by a photocopier or desktop printer and can be used both as an overt and covert security feature.
