Unlike common authentication systems, Honeywell document security systems use Honeywell-manufactured semi-covert and machine-readable luminescent materials specifically paired with secure taggant readers. This approach provides a higher level of document security.

Honeywell’s semi-covert and covert protection solutions can be used in a wide variety of applications including:

  • Driver’s Licences
  • Passports
  • IDs
  • Visas
  • Tax stamps
  • Other Documents


We offer a very broad portfolio of organic and inorganic UV pigments as well as machine readable taggants that are designed to seamlessly blend into multi-layered document authentication solutions.

Our suite of Lumilux pigments for inks, ink concentrates and varnishes offer superior lightfastness and stability and are designed to suit the print substrate (such as paper and card polymer), appearance or emission you require:

Type of security feature Applications
Ink/Ink Concentrate Flexographic, offset, screen or inkjet printing
Overprint Varnish Flood coating and flexographic, offset, or screen printing

Typical document protection technologies use commonly-available detectors that can read multiple types of luminescent materials. Our document authentication systems use proprietary optoelectronic detectors that are paired with specific Honeywell taggants. These detectors are customized for the specific chemistry and concentration level of Honeywell materials.

This “lock and key” technology helps protect against counterfeiters attempting to use similar materials. A variety of fixed and portable detectors are available to suit your application:

  • Portable detectors for field verification
  • Fixed and high-speed detectors for production lines, quality control, and forensic analysis
  • Integration into original equipment manufacturer components
