The registered application of KINEGRAM® stripes on banknotes has been the gold standard in security foils for many years. A registered surface-applied security stripe greatly increases the freedom of the banknote designer, who is now able to combine the printed banknote design and our diffractive foil feature into a visual entity. Hot-stamping stripes are a major contribution to rendering banknotes visually attractive and raising their security level. In particular, KINEGRAM® registered stripes can use any of our metallization types, which can additionally be combined with selected KURZ technologies. Those combinations make our registered banknote stripes unique compared to other products in the market, which are based on commercially available technology and create holographic stripes with a limited range of security effects.
