World's first multiple level security yarn from Microtrace

Microtrace, the original taggant company and leader of the taggant technology evolution for over 26 years, announces the availability of the world's first multiple level security yarn- Microtaggant Security Yarns. 

Easily incorporated into woven labels, fabrics, ribbons and any other woven structure, Microtaggant Security Yarns offer the highest level of security against counterfeiting. Benefits of Microtaggant Security Yarns far exceed all other security yarns; they are a tailor made security solution, are uniquely encoded specific to each customer or application, offer multiple levels of security and are easily authenticated in the field with inexpensive readers and detectors.

"For years the sewn garment industry has expressed great interest in Microtaggant Identification Particles," says Brian Brogger, Vice President of Microtrace, "However, due to the size of the Microtaggant particle, they could not be incorporated into multifilament yarns and applied efficiently.  After several years of development, we are pleased to offer the first security yarn with multiple levels of security- Microtaggant Security Yarns." 

Microtrace Security Yarns can be dyed any color and behave like a standard multifilament yarn that can be used in any woven structure.

Microtaggant Identification Particles

Microtrace Microtaggant Identification Particles are a microscopic, traceable, anti-counterfeit technology.  In basic form, Microtaggants are a unique numeric code sequence in a multiple colored layer format.  In more complex forms, Microtaggants deliver multiple layers of security through the incorporation of various materials such as up-converting phosphors, UV fluorescence, UV afterglow, etc. into the structure of each Microtaggant particle. The combination of multiple taggant technologies makes the Microtaggant very difficult if not impossible to replicate.

Microtaggant Identification Particles act as virtual fingerprints, resulting in positive, error-free identification every time.   This technology enables employees or investigators to do on-the-spot field testing, providing positive, instant identification and verification of materials with inexpensive readers and detectors.  Some customers use a single code for yes/no identification or authentication and other customers use tens or hundreds of unique codes to identify contract manufacturer, market product is intended for, time of manufacture, etc.

Founded in 1985, Microtrace, LLC. is located in Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA. The company provides a number of ready-to-use and custom anti-counterfeiting, identification and authentication solutions to virtually all industries and many governmental organizations worldwide.
