Landqart AG, a subsidiary of Vancouver, BC-based Fortress Paper Ltd., has agreed to let a new customer use their proprietary substrate, Durasafe, for the production of banknotes.

Fortress Paper expects that Landqart will start shipping Durasafe orders to the new customer in late 2017.

Durasafe is a composite substrate developed by Landqart and the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zürich. It is composed of two cotton paper outer layers and a strong, transparent polymer core. In addition to traditional security features such as an easily recognizable texture, the substrate’s unique properties also allow for windows, watermarks and security fibres on the banknote.

This new order will result in the fourth country to produce a banknote on Landqart’s substrate, following Morocco, Kazakhstan and Switzerland.
