your blog is getting so goood! did you write that?


i think there will never be a perfect counterfeit detecter,i think technology is so far advanced that people will be printing there own money and getting away with it,i think it would be wise to do away with paper money all together,wouldnt you agree?


Thank you for your comment on our blog. In fact, I agree with one part of your comment, namely that many people are in fact trying to print their own money; however usually they are not very successful doing it. There are multiple security features visible as well as invisible ones. The detectors installed at banks, are beyond any doubt exceedingly sophisticated, precise, and efficient. The paper that is used for printing bank notes as well as the security features incorporated in it, are only available to bank note printers and not to the general public, not even for money, not even for lots of money. The problem with fake bills usually is associated with the market place where insufficient detectors are in use, or the people receiving bank notes don’t bother to check if they are real.

Thank you again, your comments are always welcome!

Colouring matters Colouring matter is a collective name for all colouring substance. In this category are dyes and pigments: 1. Dyes: Dyes are organic colouring matters, which are completely soluble in solvents and / or binding agents and therewith enter into a real chemical amalgamation. You can clarify this exact definition with an example: If you put some sugar candy into hot water and stir it some time, you cannot see anymore sugar candy particles when you look through the glass afterwards. It has completely dissolved in the water. 2. Pigments: Pigments are colouring matters, which are existant insolubly in solvents and / or binding agents. This can also be clarified by an example: If you try to mix carbon black with water, you could still see particles of the carbon black, even after long stirring or shaking. The same can be watched with coffee. Consequently the carbon black and the coffee are only finely dispersed, but not completely dissolved. Pigments are mainly used for the production of colours with good covering power. Hence it can be deduced as follows: Dyes amalgamate completely with solvents and / or binding agents, while pigments are only dispersed finely, but not dissolved completely. Furthermore: Dyes result in transparent solutions, pigments in non-transparent solutions.
