Graphic Security Systems Corporation (GSSC) and Sun Chemical have signed a license agreement that combines Sun Chemical’s proprietary security solutions with GSSC’s technologies to increase protection levels against counterfeiters.
“Our partnership with GSSC and the use of its patented encoding and authentication processes will further improve security options for our customers,” says Jim Reiman, director of Sales for Sun Chemical’s Brand Protection business.
Sun Chemical’s Verigard security product is a proprietary machine-readable covert taggant system used to protect security documents and consumer products from counterfeiting and diversion. Verigard is Sun Chemical’s highest level security system and, according to the company, authenticity is ensured by using the V400 handheld reader. Other innovative covert, machine readable authentication products are available such as inks or coatings to address counterfeit, diversion and smuggling issues. GSSC says products yield a distinct ‘signature’ and are detected by a small reading device.
