The issue of product safety is of growing importance worldwide. Globally, the development of chemical markers has been carried out independently, without the development of related detection technology. Thus, only human vision remained for the detection of fluorescent dyes. In the course of the joint research and development project of Luminochem Ltd. and Optimal-Optik Ltd., we will create a new product safety system by jointly developing marking materials and detectors suitable for their identification.
The wide range of possibilities offered by instrumental detection expands the repository of chemical markers. Another goal of the project is to develop analytical equipment for the production and quality control of chemical pigments and dyes, which are optimized for the types of materials occurring in this industry, and can be used faster, cheaper and more accurately than general purpose analytical equipment. Their use reduces the time required to develop chemical markers and results in higher quality production.
Luminochem Ltd. is a security pigment supplier founded by a group of chemical engineers with a wide range of international experience in R&D projects and chemical industrial synthesis. The company specializes in developing and manufacturing unique luminescent photoactive materials and markers, with the main focus on organic fluorescent security pigments and dyes, near infra-red absorbing materials and anti-Stokes (up-converter) pigments. By converting scientific results into industrial innovation, it enables its customers to jointly develop the perfect solution in the field of marking technology. Optimal-Optik Ltd. operates in the fields of optics, precision mechanics, optoelectronics. Its primary activity is to provide design, research, and development services to customers. It also manufactures custom optical devices from prototype to medium and high volume production. It also participates in domestic and EU-funded research projects where there is a great demand for its world-leading optical expertise.
