Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/26/2018 -- Security Ink Market: Overview
Security printing is a section of the printing industry wherein items such as checks, certificates, stamp papers, bank notes, passports, identity cards, and labels are printed. Security ink plays a major role in the security printing industry. Security ink is also known as anti-counterfeit printing ink. It is manufactured through a series of special processes.
Forms of security inks that are used on a large scale include thermo-chromic ink, invisible ink, magnetic ink, optically variable ink, reactive ink, biometric ink, water based ink, and secondary fluorescing ink. These forms are majorly classified into two sub-classes: instant verification inks and tamper evident inks.

The selection of security inks depends primarily on the purpose it is used for. Usage of a suitable type of security ink helps one understand if any attempt to alter the document was made or not. Security inks are generally used in conjunction with other security features so that any changes can be easily identified.
Security inks usually comprise fluorescent pigments, which tend to change their color once the angle is changed. A government or legal document has a peculiar color scheme; based on the change in color, one can identify whether the document has been tempered or not.
