Remote Activation Security Thread
Opalux has created a security thread that allows interactive banknote security features to be activated from a distance. Squeezing the banknote in one location creates a colour or design change in another location. The result is responsive, easily observed, interactive banknote security features, which are satisfying to authenticate. The combination of an interactive security feature and remote activation is extremely challenging for counterfeiters to simulate. Opalux’s remote activation security thread is covered by several patents, including U.S. Patent No. 8,848,280. The video below shows one demonstrator in action.
