Unique optical technology

SICPA has developed a unique optical solution to secure vehicle license plates.
When viewed from different angles, SICPA’s technology exhibits subtle color changes and variations visible to the naked eye. The inherent polarization properties allow the authentication with a polarizing validator.

This optical technology enables to visually authenticate vehicle licence plates intuitively, making it a ground-breaking innovation that represents a major milestone for the industry.
