ITW Security Division highlights value of holograms in latest White Paper

ITW Security Division has added its latest White Paper entitled ‘The Hologram – Still Going Strong!’ to its website for the personal ID and secure Government documents market at www.itwsecuritydivision.com.

The White Paper challenges the predicted demise of holography and highlights its continuing role as the security feature of choice for Governments and Government agencies in the fight against counterfeiters and organised crime gangs operating in the trade of counterfeit or illicit passports, driving licenses and other personal ID documents.


The White Paper also looks at the history of the hologram and its role in today’s ID industry. From analysis of what a hologram is through to understanding its use across a variety of substrates – including ID documents and banknotes – the document explores how holography is still meeting authentication and security requirements.

“Holograms are still one of the most important security features available for the verification and authentication of a wide variety of security and ID documents,” commented Bob Carey, ITW Security Division’s business unit manager. “No competing print technology works on so many levels of security (overt, covert and forensic), nor combines the decorative, eye-catching appeal and kinetic effects available in a hologram. We’ve worked to highlight this in the latest in our series of White Papers.”

New White Papers will continue to be added, exploring ITW Security Division’s products, issues within the security documentation market and providing help in protecting documents and ID from counterfeiters.

“ITW Security Division offers a wealth of products and services to Governments and companies worldwide to enhance and protect their security documents,” explained Bob Carey, ITW Security Division’s business unit manager. “We wanted our website not only to reflect the breadth of our capabilities, but also to help users find inspiration and ideas for their projects.”
