08 April 2021 – Prismade (Printed Smart Devices) has brought its PrismaID technology to a new level. The new solution aims to protect valuable and sensitive documents like cards, contracts or certificates with an easy-to-use security label and connect them to digital services. This innovative technology is a scalable B2B solution offered to businesses with a high need of authentication and discretion during document related processes.

The essential part of the PrismaID label is a patented, printed transparent digital code. After this label has been applied to a document, it is used as a secure proof-of-presence and a key to authenticate or access digital services tied to the document. To activate the key, the document with the attached label is simply placed on a smartphone. On a verification website, the printed code will then be verified just by a swipe using the touchscreen sensor of the smartphone. This creates a straightforward and highly accessible security and verification tool, that anyone with a smartphone can use, even without prior knowledge about the document.

The PrismaID label uses ink based on the CleviosTM, the pioneering conductive polymer especially formulated for screen printing by Heraeus Epurio. Metal-free, thin, and highly transparent printed layers exhibit excellent flexibility and conductivity.

The partners now aim for the next markets with notary certified contracts, birth certificates, land ownership documents and vaccination certificates, which would strongly benefit of digitization and increased security.

Prismade is actively exploring the markets for further applications for this unique approach and welcomes any inquiries and open discussions to license the new technology platform.
