Based on the proprietary KINEGRAM® origination process, KINEGRAM VOLUME® is created by laser technology and uses distinct single colors, unlike other security foils which display the typical chromatic rainbow color effects. It shows individual, vibrant colors and a stunning 'on-off' effect.
The distinct 'on-off' optical effect of KINEGRAM VOLUME® is extremely easy to understand and to use, while at the same time virtually impossible to counterfeit. Volume holography is taken to the next level with this sophisticated technology.
The KURZ Group invested intensive efforts to adapt the underlying volume hologram technology for use in banknotes. KURZ also developed its own highly sophisticated production equipment and material for this feature. The vibrantly colored, highly prominent images can only be seen at narrow angles when the banknote is tilted back and forth, otherwise they remain invisible. To secure your banknotes with special security features, we provide you with two different solutions:
In its pure form as a standalone feature, with two pre-defined colors, it is a principal element in the new Israeli Shekel banknote series. The unique and surprising visual effects maximize not only the security of the banknotes, but also the ease of public education.
KINEGRAM VOLUME® can additionally be enhanced with the classic KINEGRAM® partial metallization technology. In this combination it was selected to protect the new series of Swiss Franc banknotes.
