  • More robust options, such as pure paper, polymer substrates and polymers composite or premium paints and varnishes are being adopted by a majority of central banks. Although it is more expensive, due to their longer life and increased resistance to folding, soiling and microbes, changing to a polymer can result in significant cost savings for issuing authorities.
  • A additional key factor in the Bank's decision to modernise banknotes was an increase of local and global counterfeiting of polymers. The substrate of most banknotes is paper, which is often made from cotton fibres for strength and durability. Some papers are made from linen, specialized colored or forged threads added to enhance their uniqueness and protect them against copying.
  •  The growing need for a fight against fake banknotes has led to an increased use of security paper in cash and banknotes. As a feature of the protection of money, threads or fibres, holograms and markings are often used. In banknotes, the watermark is mainly used because it is easy for the public to recognise, and it provides protection against scanners, chemical, mechanical, and reproduction attempts. Furthermore, security fibers and a watermark are used to protect color photocopying.
