BREEZE™


Micro-Optic Security Threads for
High-Demand Banknotes

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?

BREEZE exhibits secure, moving effects displayed across its 3 mm width. Among these distinctive and easy to authenticate effects are Cubic, Ripple and Stellar – each available in four high contrast colors (red, green, blue and violet).
 
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.
