Abstract
At present time, no safety technique or tool is available for the identification of the authenticity of licensed production of high quality technical textiles. In the majority of cases, it is difficult to distinguish the difference between real and fake products because counterfeiters can develop ‘visible’ identifying ways to reproduce these labels within a few hours of the release of the products. The presently used printed coats, labels or laser markings are visible and relatively easy to falsify. For the textile and clothing industry more advanced, secret methods that are difficult to detect, copy and reproduce digitally are therefore needed. The objective of this project is a development of such a new and innovative technology, based on invisible infrared IR coding.
In the framework of a running European project called INCODE, research is focus to generate invisible inks (IR - detectable) that can be applied in the form of codes, logos ... in a creative way through digital printing technologies. DP-technology is the preferred application technology thanks to its flexibility, versatility, economic and ecological issues.
