Baking papers and natural fiber molding materials

Get your abrasive secured!

 

The fakes industry has unfortunately not spared the abrasive market.

It harms abrasive manufacturers that have created original products by diluting their brand, ripping off their intellectual property, patents and trademarks and creating at the end sales loss.

Worse, when it comes to resinoid bonded cutting-off and grinding wheels, it even triggers security issues.

 

If you belong to those companies with high-quality abrasives,  having invested in R&D and following high sustainable standards, you might wish to find ways to  

  • track fakes
  • integrate devices to make your original solution recognizable

 

Ahlstrom-Munksjö has imagined a patented solution for this. Protect now your coated abrasives or resinoid bonded wheels using abrasive paper backings with BeSecure™ Inside.

.



What is the principle ?

BeSecureTM is Ahlstrom-Munksjö's registered trademark for its abrasive security fibers solutions.

Security Fibers


Security fibers are embedded in the paper during its manufacturing without affecting either the mechanical or chemical characteristics of the backing.

Security fibers are defined by their length, diameter and colours. Playing on the concentration, Ahlstrom-Munksjö can create a unique highly technical abrasive paper backing, which makes the final abrasive hardly replicable.

 

 

What do we recommend ?

Depending on the abrasive brand strategy, we can use either :

  • Visible colored and/or fluorescent fibers

This solution is the best if you want to market to the final user how to identify the original quality.

They can be applied on coated abrasive paper backings or on papers to layer onto fiberglass mesh for resinoid cutting-off discs.

 

  • Invisible features, which will only be revealed under a UV lamp. 

This solution is the best if you want to track secretely and proof genuinity.

They can be applied on coated abrasive paper backings or on papers to layer onto fiberglass mesh for resinoid cutting-off discs.

 

  • Combine both visible or invisible features


What will it bring to your brand ?

This solution limits the risk of counterfeiting and enables producers to clearly identify the requested product quality, when the material is further processed in the value chain.

By using the requested quality, the users of the abrasive product can protect themselves from potential breaks or damages in the production process and potential health injuries during sanding or grinding
