Plastics Color Corp. has entered the anti-counterfeit market with a new line of particle taggants.

The Calumet City, Ill., firm said its Mi Batch taggants are compatible with a wide variety of resins to impart a high level of security and verification for consumer products, electronics, medical products, aviation and automotive.

Plastics Color says counterfeiting is a multi-billion dollar threat globally.

“Mi Batch was developed as an extremely cost-effective anti-counterfeit measure enabling manufacturers and retailers to protect brand identity and ensure supply chain integrity,” explains Plastics Color vice president of business development Tim Workman.

The company’s taggants have a unique chemical and spectral signature for each customer. Taggant particles become an integral part of the plastic material or item. Detection equipment can read the signature to verify authenticity of the product.

Plastics Color says it can make the taggants in any volume. They can be added to a masterbatch to ensure supply chain integrity.
