LongLife banknote paper can be exclusively customized to embed watermarks, security threads, and machine-readable elements to secure the banknote against counterfeiting. Virtually identical in look and feel to cotton banknotes, LongLife banknotes are ideal for displaying attractive security features in a prestigious banknote design. The intense compression of the LongLife coating and paper during intaglio printing further enhances the banknote’s anti-soiling properties.
