TESLIN® Security-Grade Substrate

Teslin Security-Grade substrate supplements the performance benefits of standard Teslin substrate by incorporating embedded and customized security features, which enables the creation of secure credentials that are easy to authenticate and difficult to counterfeit.

Secure Processing and Performance Benefits

Teslin Security-Grade substrate combines several barriers that make it unique among synthetic substrates. In addition to being single-source manufactured by PPG Industries, which hinders acquisition of the material through unsecured sources, Teslin Security-Grade substrate is:

  • Easily combined with other materials to produce multi-layered credentials.
  • Embedded with customized security features during manufacture.
  • Easy to authenticate through visually distinguishable extruded features.
  • Formulated for exclusive, program-specific application by individual security organizations.
