Paul Cooper will lead Luminescence, Sun Chemical’s Security Division.

Sun Chemical’s Security Division, Wexham Springs, United Kingdom, will operate under the brand name of Luminescence, the highly regarded manufacturer of security and brand protection inks that Sun Chemical acquired earlier this year.

Suppliers of the very latest in security ink technological developments to governments and security printers in more than 100 countries, Luminescence manufactures security inks suitable for offset, intaglio, flexo, gravure, screen, numbering, and inkjet processes and security threads.

Luminescence will remain a standalone business, guaranteeing the confidentiality and strict protocols followed in the security inks business. This will be led by Paul Cooper, who has more than 30 years of experience in the security market.

Specializing in customized, ink-based solutions for banknotes, tax stamps and secure documents, such as passports and ID cards, the new business offers customers a combination of technology, production and R&D capabilities, global reach and financial stability.
