Machine Readable Taggants

Spectra’s TagSureTM formulations are customized taggants (chemical markers). When combined with Spectra readers, TagSureTM provides secure covert authentication solutions. Once mixed into commercial inks, coatings or varnishes taggants are undetectable except with a specially engineered reader, making the solution truly covert.

TagSureTM utilized the analytical technique of spectrophotometry to identify tagged items from untagged ones. This distinguishes genuine products and documents from counterfeits.

Spectra readers operate across the ultraviolet, visible and near infrared wave spectrum providing a wide analysis range. The design of our readers allows us to choose both the excitation frequencies and detection parameters for each taggant in our special signatures. Any readings that fail to match the code profile at any one of the data points will cause a "reject" indication from the reader.
