There’s a wealth of exciting developments happening in the world of banknote production and security. And with today’s innovations, anti-counterfeit features play a crucial role in the design and appearance of the note too – no wonder, as these are just as important as security. As a proven and recognised high-tech enterprise, Louisenthal is particularly proud of its extensive teams of scientists and engineers. Every day, they research, develop and test new technologies – and more advanced versions of existing techniques – to make your banknotes even more secure. Here’s a selection.
The Road To Circularity
The circular economy proposes a new, different way of thinking about economic activity – a way of thinking that will secure economic prosperity and sustainability in the long term. What this means for a future-proof Green Cash Cycle.
Sustainability at every level
G+D's Green Banknote is far more than a Hybrid ADDvance® banknote with the lowest carbon footprint: with no compromise on durability and security, a core with a green heart, the minimized use of plastic ot is a contribution to a more sustainable future and higher public acceptance for cash as a preferred means of payment.
A new order
What is essential for the perfect match of security and aesthectics? Innovation, technological know-how and close communication with customers and partners.
The thread that binds us
When paper and thread meet in the banknote, the result is ideally far more than maximum security. And in the case of Papierfabrik Louisenthal, it is even more: an integrated system supplier.
Sustainability by nature
Cotton is used worldwide and to this day more than any other fiber. For banknote production, it is nothing less than the raw material of choice when it comes to maximum security, sustainability, and durability. About an all-rounder with innovative strength.
Security by design
Security technology and banknotes, that always means a forward-thinking and acting in advance – in the very best case in a tight interplay with banknote design. Learn more about the triad of design integration, inspiration, and identification.
Make less plastic work
Sustainable banknotes that are uncompromisingly secure and particularly durable: Hybrid ADDvance® takes up the challenge. With the newly developed cotton-polymer hybrid substrate, Louisenthal is paving the way for banknotes that can meet even the most demanding requirements.
See banknotes in a new light
The demands placed on banknotes are growing all the time and the attractiveness of the banknote as a means of payment in itself is increasingly competing with other payment options. With RollingStar® i+ Louisenthal has taken the visual impact and design possibilities for banknotes to a new level.
The Life of a Banknote
Louisenthal is running the “Life of a Banknote” program to promote tangible action for green banknotes, including the use of green energy, fair-trade cotton, reusable packaging and recycling.
When you’re looking to maximise the life of your banknotes – to reduce the cost, frequency and environmental impact of reprinting – the substrate you use is crucial – specially in tropical countries.
Small mirrors – big impact
Created by unique and highly complex algorithms, our micromirror technology secures your banknotes by placing over 4 million tiny mirrors per square centimetre directly on the substrate. The colourful and sparkling effect is incredibly beautiful – and incredibly hard to forge.
It’s a real eye-catcher for your banknotes. A small, transparent window that offers you design flexibility with a choice of additional security effects. The best thing about our smart windows? They help you tell a compelling story about your country while ensuring top-notch protection against counterfeiting.
