For a clean and more durable paper
Banknotes pass from hand to hand and are submitted to regular handling, repeated folding, crumpling and even accidental washing. These difficult circulation conditions can cause the quality of banknotes to deteriorate.
Banknotes become unfit and must be withdrawn from circulation.
As a guarantor of the good quality of circulating banknotes, Central banks aim at prolonging their lifecycle. Papers with high-durability treatments have been developed to extend banknote lifetime. Arjowiggins Security has played a leading role in the development of these highly durable products. Our extensive range of substrates allows us to offer the most appropriate treatment to answer any issue in terms of durability.
