Safety Marking

Safety marked sewing and embroidery yarns for the prevention of product piracy

Aim of the project is the development of sewing or embroidery yarns which can be used as unambiguous safety markers for textile products. For this, preferentially IR-absorbing (in particular LaB6 particles) and for achieving higher safety standards, additionally photoluminescent and/or coloured nanopigments are used. The combination of different markers results in a large number of variations which enable a specific and unambiguous fingerprint of safety yarns.
