A New Paradigm in Banknote Security

While offering our foil products in the format of security threads is a novelty for KURZ, we can confidently build on the industry leading experience of our specialists. The same know-how that goes into our surface-applied products is also the basis of our threads – including, most importantly, the same focus on quality and durability. Surface-applied foil features and threads are actually closely related; their production and composition are quite similar. KURZ distinguishes itself not only by extensive know-how in foil production and application, but also by the unique KINEGRAM® technology for the creation of outstanding visual effects.


Two Options for Your Individual Security Thread

The one-of-a-kind, proprietary KINEGRAM® technology allows you to create striking and clearly defined effects that conventional e-beam holography cannot achieve. Consequently, KINEGRAM® threads are immediately recognizable even by the untrained eye, enabling intuitive verification. 

In typical thread widths of 3 – 6 mm, two varieties of KURZ THREADS are currently available:
