Plastics provide protection against piracy

COMPOUNDING WORLD: Plastics provide protection against piracy with the help of POLYSECURE

Anti-counterfeiting additives are becoming more sophisticated to help fight product piracy. Jennifer Markarian looks at the latest developments. A convincing solution comes from Polysecure.

Bristol, United Kingdom, November 2014. Counterfeit products today are not just luxury goods like the designer watch or purse one might buy from a questionable vendor on a city sidewalk. They are, in fact, a bane to consumers and companies in a diverse range of industries including clothing, pharmaceuticals, toys, electronics, and even automotive. Counterfeit plastic made news in February 2014 when Aston Martin expanded a recall to over 17,500 cars that it discovered used an accelerator pedal moulded from a counterfeit polyamide instead of the specifi ed DuPont polyamide. Although no accidents or injuries were reported as a result in the Aston Martin case, counterfeit materials do have the potential to cause injury to consumers or, at the least, injure a brand’s reputation and result in increased warranty claims.

Anti-counterfeiting additives can help identify the difference between fake and genuine goods. POLYSECURE has the solutions here.
