Legally binding counterfeit protection with micro colourcodes against product piracy


A German firm has developed an inimitable counterfeit protection based on colour-codified micro particles.The technology ensures legally binding counterfeit protection against product piracy, effective defence of unjustified liability claims and cost saving product protection through easy application. The company looks for partners to integrate the technology within commercial agreements with technical assistance.

Partner sought

The German firm is looking for industrial partners from any area/sector requiring authentification of products or increased security. They should integrate the technology into their production process with the technical consultancy of the German company. The German firm will assist the implementation process.


The German company has developed a counterfeit protection system based on a technology counterfeiters do not possess: micro colour-codes, microscopically small particles in which four to ten colour coatings are combined to form a unique code. Every user receives his individual colour-code. Over 4.35 billion different colour-codes are possible. The particles are extremely heat resistant as well as resistant to solvents, chemicals and many acids. They can be applied by all stablished printing processes and via dispenser. Another possibility is to integrate the particles into plastics or liquids, gritting and bulk material, granulate or any loose substances. The inimitable consistency of the colour-codes enables an easy application, insertion, admixture or addition to all customary materials so that any product can be directly secured. The counterfeit protection system is accepted as evidence by international courts and fulfils all security requirements. Due to its food safety characteristics, it is particularly suitable for use in the food and pharmaceutical industries. The microparticles do not form any organic compounds and are excreted via the intestine. They are therefore not harmful to the health of children or adults. The company is looking for partners that implement the system with their advice and support. Partners could be all kind of product manufacturers, also companies that produce product for the end-consumer like beverages, food, medicines, textiles, electrical equipment and have problems with product piracy and/or unjustified liability claims.
