This project aims at studying innovative techniques for protecting commercial products against counterfeiting. Two kinds of products will be considered within the project: textile fibers and fabrics on one hand and manufactured goods made of thermoplastic or including a thermoplastic substrate on the other hand. The protection will be carried out by embedding identification information directly on material surfaces, using micro and nanotechnologies (coating). The embedded identifiers are keys to databases allowing the traceability of products from factories to final customers.
