What is Guardian™ Polymer Substrate

Guardian™ is the world's most advanced banknote substrate, uniquely constructed using CCL Secure’s proprietary method and the highly secure Clarity™C base film which is manufactured and supplied exclusively for banknotes.

The performance of Guardian™ polymer substrate in regard to security, durability, cleanliness and environmental-friendliness has been proven across the last three decades with central bank-generated data providing a wealth of compelling evidence that Guardian™ polymer is the most effective currency management strategy a central bank can use to transform its operations.

There are more than 20 billion Guardian™ notes currently in circulation, including in some of the world's most demanding cash cycles.
