Polysecure GmbH and plastics processor Röchling Industrial have entered into an exclusive partnership agreement under which Röchling will make use of an innovative marker technology in plastic products developed by Polysecure.
Polysecure GmbH has been developing innovative marker materials and detection technologies at its site in Freiburg, Germany, since 2009 and is one of the leading companies in marker technology. Röchling will use the technology, which it calls SmartMarker, to provide its plastic products with an identifier, allowing customers to authenticate and identify their components and providing enhanced options for counterfeit protection, the development of digital material passports and sorting for recycling purposes.
"We give our plastic products a distinctive identifier made of tiny marker particles. The markers are invisible and do not affect the technical properties of the material. Every component complies with our high standard technical requirements,” explained Axel Höfter, general manager Corporate R&D at Röchling Industrial.
