World-class brand protection and security solutions are born of a combination of high technology and agile strategic vision. At Stardust Materials, our goal is to unite the most innovative anti-counterfeiting and anti-diversion tools with the most up-to-date intelligence on the black-market and criminal marketplace.
Our leading edge technology includes forensic, covert, and overt solutions. Some of which include:
Spotting fake bills may be challenging even if you are familiar with the local currency. Not so with CashPal! A simple but powerful tool used to verify and validate currency.
Stardust’s premiere covert marker technology, StarMark™, includes a physical marker that can be authenticated anywhere, anytime. Invisible, even in clear inks, StarMark™, can be integrated into any type of ink allowing it to be printed onto documents, labels or product packaging and detected only with our hand-held, easy to use detectors.
StarMark™ can even be overprinted while retaining its security capabilities (StarMark™ has been used in protecting tax stamps, foreign postage stamps, major apparel labels, jewelry, and a number of other consumer products.)
Stardust’s patented use of nano-marker technologies in inkjet printing provides high security personalization or data-variable print on demand. From popular features like StarUltraV™ to StarMark™ covert markers, Stardust offers customizable solutions to fit your in-line or desktop printing needs.
Stardust® security solutions are available in commercially widespread drop-on-demand platforms like HP® as well as in CIJ, such as LEIBINGER® and Domino®.
Stardust’s invisible printing technology enables you to produce high security text and data-variable codes, such as machine-readable 2D barcodes. StarScript™ is compatible with your existing desktop or rotary printer and because it can be overprinted, this powerful security feature will not interfere with your graphics. StarScript™ text and codes can be read with our advanced VIPIR™ camera system.
Stardust has developed StarUltraV™ security inks that can withstand the harshest of environments. Our UV fluorescing inks are designed to be exceptionally lightfast and stable. Once printed, StarUltraV™ security features are invisible until they are exposed to the right UV light. StarUltraV™ technology is available for inkjet, flexo, gravure, offset, pad, and silk screen processes.
When a single UV feature is not enough, increase your level of security with Stardust’s specially developed dual-wave invisible UV ink that responds to longwave, shortwave and medium-wave UV with drastic color changes, such as blue to red, green to orange, and yellow to orange. Ask about our most recent color developments.
Our StarPoint™ inks, once printed, convert invisible infrared light from a laser pen into bright visible colors. Easy and instantaneous verification can be made up to 6 feet away. StarPoint™ technology is available for inkjet, flexo, gravure, offset, pad, and silk screen processes.
Stardust’s overt security feature, StarShift™, is authenticated by observing a color-shift between two commonly available light sources (fluorescent vs. sun/incandescent). The color-shift is instantaneous and reversible. This remarkable effect does not wear out over time, no matter how many color-shift cycles the ink has been exposed to. StarShift™ is available in a variety of color transitions.
An innovative systemic operation combining information technology with high-speed camera systems and covert security solutions, with the purpose of creating a durable supply-chain – from start to finish.
