Protective nano-coating and anti-erasing ink can prevent tampering product information on packaging


Anti-Erasing (ATE) Ink for Anti-counterfeit of Consumer Products

In recent years, there has been a surging increase in counterfeit consumer goods, thus posing a threat to public health, consumer confidence and brand values. The unethical act of tampering with or removal of packaging information such as expiry dates and where a product was made is a growing problem in sizable markets in the world. Therefore, there is an urgent need to develop advanced anti counterfeiting technology.

Professor Li and her research team of the Department of Applied Biology and Chemical Technology have developed a breakthrough solution to tackle this urgent problem. After nearly three years of research and development, a series of anti-counterfeiting products has been developed, including protective nano-coatings and ATE Inks. Printing with ATE Ink can leave irremovable trace marks, thus allow consumers to identify tampered goods. This technology is pivotal in solving the problem of tracing product information and improves the traceability of products.
