What are banknotes made of?

🔎 Traditionally, paper made from cotton is used to produce money around the world. Sometimes linen or other fibers are added to cotton to improve the strength and durability of the money. Nowadays, due to the use of plastic in the production of banknotes, their durability is significantly improved

What is the durability of banknotes?
➡️ Banknotes must be dirt-resistant, resistant to heat, moisture and mechanical effects and strong.

✅ In addition, banknotes must be provided with protective devices. The security level of the banknote increases due to its components, in particular, fluorescent dyes, magnetic, metal and microprinting marks. Some of the more commonly used security features of banknotes include the insignia and security thread

🔵 Polymer banknotes are not only durable, but also difficult to duplicate, copy one by one with their unique properties, for example, an optically variable device.

It should be noted that the requirements for banknote material are increasing not only in terms of strength, but also in terms of environmental cleanliness. Due to the fact that plastic is not considered an environmentally friendly material, and a large amount of carbon dioxide emissions are generated during its production and processing, hybrid banknotes have become one of the best options.

Hybrid banknotes consist of several layers of cotton base. A very thin layer of polymer protects the cotton core. A sign and a protective thread are placed on it
