Striking effects from every angle.
PUREIMAGE™ is the next generation of holographic threads, with novel movement and pulsing effects, not usually associated with holograms.
Metallic threads naturally catch the eye. Upon closer examination the advanced diffractive microstructures generate effects that are visible when tilted on any angle. With a wide viewing angle, PUREIMAGE™ is impactful in thread widths as narrow as 2mm and even more striking in wider threads.
- Combining with KINETIC STARCHROME® in a series of banknotes
- Using across an entire series, selecting wider thread variants for higher value banknotes
- Design synergies with holographic patches and stripes – themes and
effects can replicate across the banknote for easy public recognition and engagement
- State printing works and commercial printers
PUREIMAGE™ holographic effects require bespoke imaging equipment that is programmed with advanced code. This leads to novel holographic effect that includes pulsing, intuitive movement (one direction) and counterintuitive movement (opposing directions).
The designs can be customized, for instance incorporating characters or numbers into the effects, making this an incredibly versatile thread.
