The two best inventions in Russia 27.04.2015
At the end of April at the session of the Scientific and Technical Councils of Rospatent and Federal Institute of Industrial Property, the representatives of Goznak received two diplomas in the 100 Best Inventions of Russia in 2014 category.
Goznak was awarded with one diploma for the development of a “data carrier protected against counterfeiting and the method of its manufacturing” (“Zebra” security element), and the other for the development of a “security element on the basis of multilayer transparent colour contrasting decomposable polymer structure for a security printed product and the method of its manufacturing, a material protected against counterfeiting and a printed product (“Blik” security element).
In 2014 the “Zebra” security element received one of the awards of the Excellence in Currency Awards Competition in Washington D.C. (for special success in the cash turnover sphere) in The Best New Currency Feature category, held by IACA (International Association of Currency Affairs).
We would like to note that both the security features have not only been developed and patented, but are used in the production of Goznak already.
