Taggant Inks

With the customer’s best interests in mind, Kao Collins has partnered with Honeywell Authentication Technologies to formulate a variety of customizable taggant security inks to meet specific requirements.

Honeywell offers high-end security pigments for printing applications that support authentication, such as:

  • Currency
  • Military equipment
  • Passports
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Tickets
  • Watches and Purses
  • And more

Our partnership with Honeywell allows us to offer inks with a higher level of security by pairing your unique ink formulation with a custom-designed detector designed to “read” only your specific Kao Collins ink. This “lock and key” technique protects against counterfeiters attempting to use similar materials to mimic the ink.

Available for These Printheads

Dimatix | Funai | HP | Kodak | Konica Minolta | Kyocera | Ricoh | SII Printek | XBAR | XAAR

Long-lasting Partnerships

We believe customers – not chemists – should drive innovation in the inkjet industry.
