Traceability - an important element in the safety of parts and products

Traceability - an important element in the safety of parts and products

Many companies with various business areas use the invisible or covert markings for traceability and quality control. Ultraviolet (UV) codes are printed with UV ink and are visible to the human eye only when a UV light source is present. A UV code that contains QA results or a serial number can be printed on the product or on the packaging without affecting its design. Whether they are on automotive warning labels needed for a or high-end salon products checked for authenticity, UV codes are emerging as a popular new tool in tracking and traceability.
