What is significant about this hologram project?

“Antarctica 200 3D” security stripe is a advanced combined feature which incorporates photopolymer holograms and demetallised images made with HPMD.

3D-GramТМ Technology

The proprietary 3D-GramТМ technology displays visual effects different from traditional foil-based rainbow holograms. The key features of 3D-GramТМ security elements are highly prominent 3D images and color selectivity. 3D-GramТМ hologram keeps its original color at different viewing angles.

“Antarctica 200 3D” stripe exhibits a vibrant image of a whale and commemorative dates “1820” and “2020” in green color with a bas-relief effect visible in diffused and point light source.

Images of stars, inscription in Russian “АНТАРКТИДА” and anniversary date “200” in red color display a mirror effect. Each number of the date includes an encrypted microtext “FYNFHRNBLF” of 100 microns high.

3D-GramТМ hologram can incorporate a range of security features including bas-relief, full parallax, mirror effects, microtexts, flip-flop effect of colors and images.

Available in red, green, blue, light gold color and their combinations 3D-GramТМ holograms can be customized to a particular banknote design.

HPMD Technology

The photopolymer security features are complemented by diffractive elements demetallised with HPMD technology. The combination of the sophisticated technologies provides enhanced security of the stripe and guarantees its extreme resistance to imitation and counterfeiting.

Optical effects of photopolymer elements and precise images made by HPMD compose the unique stripe design. HPMD creates detailed images with vibrant dynamic effects. The stripe incorporates a composition of Antarctic mountains with color dynamic effect and an image of a compass decorated with guilloche lines featuring a dynamic effect. The compass displays holographic grey dynamic tone flow effect.
