A leading player in the banknote industry, VHP Security Paper has been producing and supplying state-of-the-art banknote paper to Central banks and high security printers throughout the world for more than 200 years.
Pixel™ is a breakthrough multi-tone watermark technology. Its effect is created from a high contrast between a light background and dark dots, generating a deeper image with more perspective.
HD Vision™ offers exceptional definition and detail. Thanks to enhanced intensity of black and white areas, HD Vision™ is a high-contrast, luminous and remarkably bright watermark.
High Durability Papers
VHP Security Paper offers an extensive range of substrates to match the requirements of different banknote denominations and circulation conditions. With over two centuries of experience and expertise in the banknote paper production, VHP Security paper has played a key role in the development of high durable solutions to meet its clients’ requests to extend banknotes lifespan.
Diamone™ is a cost-effective and high-durability banknote paper with anti-soiling properties and high print quality. It is compatible with all the common security features and it has a +70% longevity index in comparison to notes printed on standard banknote paper.
Diamone™ Composite is a high durability paper, made by combining anti-soiling surface treatments and an innovative fibrous structure – a mix of strong synthetic fibres to the cotton pulp. Thanks to this structure, Diamone™ Composite offers exceptional resistance.
Banknote papers are highly technical substrates which can include many different elements such as pigments and fibers, watermarks, security threads, holograms, screen printings as well as treatments. Banknotes can be an issue of public health as they are a breeding ground for diseases and epidemics. Indeed, they host countless micro-organisms and billions of them are exchanged daily.
This is why we developed Bioguard™, a banknote treatment offering antibacterial and antifungal protection.
Security threads are one of the most reliable security features used in banknote paper to protect against counterfeit. Security threads are very versatile in designs, effects and insertion methods.
To bring a human touch
Picture Thread™ allows detailed and complex images, such as portraits, to be included on security threads. Arrays of fine dots create tonal variation, resulting in a 3D effect, which is extremely difficult to mimic.
A striking and dynamic optical effect for banknote authentication
Wink™ Thread is a highly secure feature, constructed from two parallel stripes. Each stripe is fully customizable. When tilting the thread, a silver effect appears to jump from one side of the thread to the other. Depending on the angle of view, the information on one stripe appears while the other disappears under a shiny silver layer.
A new original and powerful design platform for security threads
Wide windowed security thread, machine readable, showing two tracks, side-by-side, with optically variable effects and connected by bridges. Negative patterns and/or texts are incorporated on both tracks and across the bridges.
A simple and efficient security thread with brilliant and easily recognizable colourshifting effects based on Liquid Crystal technology.
Colourshifting windowed thread with 2 colour pairs combined in a complex design with clear negative texts.
