Design of Codes and Labels
Utilising NanoTag’s unique taggants, the production and design team at NanoTag Technology liaise with clients to bring together a perfect marriage of tailored branding and product-specific coding and labeling.
All aspects of your security solutions are expertly managed to deliver premium client-specific branding and design, from the microscopic NanoTags themselves through to our many applicators, tapes, seals, glues, plastics and packaging materials.
Each single NanoTag features an optically variable device and a chemical-etched unique Security Identification Code on a microscopic nickel tag. The multi-colour optically variable device is a customised client-specific brand.
Each state-of-the-art nickel tag is impossible to replicate, virtually indestructible and highly adaptable to myriad security applications. NanoTags are then incorporated into a range of micro-tagging techniques that are among the most innovative and sophisticated available anywhere in the world.
What is a NanoTag?
NanoTags feature a hologram-like nano image displaying changes of colour under different viewing angles – in the form of a personalised brand, created to order.
Technically not a hologram, it is known as an optically variable device or OVD. A real hologram viewed under a microscope is seen as a meaningless grey mass of micro-particles, but the images on a NanoTag under microscope reveals the branding in fine details and brilliant colours.
A Security Identification Code (SIC) is etched physically through the body of the nickel tag. The same SIC is repeated through the thousands of NanoTags contained in each personalised batch of NanoTag Technology products and mixed with a special proprietary adhesive.
Once dry, the NanoTags are encased in a crystal-clear coat – resistant to water, most chemicals and environments. The tags are extremely robust and chemically resistant, able to withstand temperatures of over 1000⁰C without oxidizing and a melting point of 1453⁰C.
