In recent years, SPM has been focused on innovation in Research and Development of specialty papers with unusual or unique characteristics.

Over the years we have made many advances in the development of the paper and its security features, such as fast verification of the paper authenticity using a special felt pen „Blanka“.

Furthermore, we can mention a unique watermark feature, visible only on one side under the UV light, or an application of metal fibers (measured in microns) to the paper which can be electronically detected.

A major benefit of the development of security features in paper and the use of IR active pigment which can be detected using a laser pen.
