CCL Secure is the global expert in polymer banknote substrate.
CCL Secure’s sites in Australia, Mexico and England are solely focused on developing this technology, with dedicated Research and Development (R&D) facilities, best-of-class production lines and a specialised, highly experienced polymer substrate design and concept team.
Since the first polymer banknote was issued in 1988, the Guardian™ technology has been issued on more than 140 denominations and commemorative banknotes around the world.
Compared to traditional cotton-paper and so-called long life coated-paper notes, Guardian™ is at least 10 times more secure, 75 per cent cleaner, three to five times more durable and up to 60 per cent more eco-friendly.
Banknote Corporation of America (BCA) is a division of CCL Secure and the largest US-based high-security printer. From secured document origination, identification, tax stamps, secured polymers and labels to personalisation and distribution, BCA collaborates closely with governments, clients and technology providers to create innovative and secure products.
Central banks and commercial banks use a variety of secure packaging methods to store and transport banknotes. It is important that due care is exercised when opening these packages, as damage can be caused to the banknotes within.
PolyTeQ is now offering an online training module on best-practice handling of Guardian™ polymer banknotes.
