PASMA card security features

PASMA cards are proof that someone has received PASMA training. The cards have a range of security features, which we’ve summarised below. There are some additional features that we’ve chosen not to publicise in the interests of greater security.

GUILLOCHE
Guilloche is a decorative engraving technique where a very precise intricate repetitive pattern or design is mechanically engraved into an underlying material with fine detail. This technique is commonly used on bank notes, currency or cards etc. to protect against forged copies.

UV INK
UV ink is applied to the card and is invisible to the naked eye. It can only be seen when a UV light is applied to the card.

HATCHED LINES
This is a technique where the design has very fine lines printed on the card which if photocopied will not duplicate.

HOLOGRAPHIC IMAGE
A hologram is embedded via hot-stamping foil, wherein an extremely thin layer of only a few microns of depth is bonded into the card using a hot-melt adhesive. This is very difficult to duplicate on a fraudulent card as the colours change as you move the card.
