Anti-Counterfeiting Technology

October 3, 2005

Adhesives Research has introduced ARmark Authentication Technologies, a new business focusing on anti-counterfeiting technology in the form of covert markers that can be combined with custom-developed delivery systems for application to a variety of goods including pharmaceuticals, packaging, food, apparel, currency and bonds and government documents. The covert ARmark markers are identified via digital micro-imaging hardware and customized software programs. These authentication technologies were developed to aid in supply chain control, product surety and risk mitigation for industries faced with global counterfeiting that is estimated to result in billions of dollars lost each year for manufacturers worldwide. The use of covert authentication markers to enhance product surety can positively impact the validation and verification of genuine goods and help manage brand theft, trademark infringement, piracy, counterfeiting and forgery.
