Microscopically small fluorescent particles, so-called taggants, that are embedded in the plastic granulate are referred to as a TAGTEC masterbatch. TAGTEC masterbatches are used to mark plastic products. For this purpose the masterbatch granulate is mixed with neutral non-marked plastic granulate as a rule in a ratio of 0.3%/99.7% up to 3.0%/97.0%, and usually is then fed e.g. into an extruder in mixed condition. The various types of taggants that are available are described in more detail below.

 



UV-A excitable taggants
(UV-A is the upper UV range from approx. 310nm to 380nm)

In this case the fluorescent particles are excited by UV-A light (365nm average wavelength), which is referred to as primary emission. This results in a secondary emission in the visible wavelength range (approx. 400nm to 700nm). The colour of the taggants that can be observed due to secondary emission depends on their doping. Typical secondary emission centers lie in the blue, green, yellow, orange and red wavelength range.
Phosphorescent (afterglowing) particles, so-called luminophores, are a special type of taggants. After the end of primary emission (supply of light) these markers show an exponential fading of secondary emission. The speed of phosphorescence fading differs depending on the type of marker (determined by way of the time constant Tau that is characteristic for the respective e-function).

The following sensors can be used for the detection of TAGTEC markers (embedded in plastic):

Primary emission: UV-A 365nm
