Premium Beauty News - What is this technology all about?
Xavier Costet - Our technology uses a femto-second laser, which makes it possible to carry out the marking of diffractive codes inside transparent material without causing any damage to the substrate unlike other technologies.
The other major advantages of the marking are :no microcracks, no additives, a marking inside the material with a diffractive effect and a very high resolution which allows the miniaturization of 0.5 mm x 0.5 mm data matrix codes.
The laser marking technology itself, offers many advantages: no consumables, low energy consumption and optimum reading of the codes.

Xavier Costet - This technology fully meets the requirements of the perfumery and cosmetics industry in terms of traceability, authentication and anti-counterfeiting. Each vial may be marked with an unalterable mark inside the material, guaranteeing the visual authenticity of the product (control by the buyer). We can also add to the marked information a coded and hidden element to ensure the consolidation of data and of the anti-counterfeiting aspect (control by the authorities). You can compare this internal engraving to a watermark in the glass that we call Filiglass®.
With our partners, we can also manage the integration of our technology on the production line. We can also perform evaluations and small batches with the equipment available in our laboratories.
