Micro-Optic Security Threads for
BREEZE is a new micro-optic security product from Crane Currency for protecting low denomination, high-demand banknotes. BREEZE security threads are specifically engineered for maximum durability, security and cost-effectiveness. And they are designed to protect banknotes with fast, unambiguous verification at a low cost.
BREEZE provides central banks with an alternative to older security features such as colorshift threads. These threads are today experiencing simulations on an industrial-scale, thereby eroding the confidence and security of banknotes that still rely on them.
How does it work?

These three-dimensional and dynamic visual combinations are easily seen in all lighting conditions. High contrast colors and bold movement are set to a customized window pattern offering a proven solution built on security, ease of use and beauty.
