CCL Secure

CCL Secure is the global leader in bank grade polymers for banknotes, with research and production sites in Australia, Mexico and the UK. Our sophisticated GUARDIAN™ substrate has been issued by more than 80 central banks on over 175 denominations and commemorative banknotes around the world. CCL Secure is also the creator of the ultra-durable SPARTAN™ polymer banknote that is engineered specifically for the note/coin boundary, reducing the cost of maintaining notes in circulation in high transactional volume environments. Multiple research projects, often commissioned by central banks, show that polymer banknotes last many times longer than paper, significantly reduce counterfeiting thanks to both the material used and the ability to include advanced security features, and have much less environmental impact than their paper counterparts. CCL Secure is a division of CCL Industries which employs more than 20,000 people worldwide and operates from over 150 production facilities across 35 countries on six continents.
