Welcome to


Even in an age of electronic banking, contactless payments and smartphone payment systems, there is still a deep and underlying need for cash as a trusted store of value.

As polymer banknotes play an increasing role in ensuring that billions of people have confidence in the currency they use each day, it’s unsurprising that CCL Secure is the partner of choice for central banks and issuing authorities around the world.

It’s easy to see why. Ever since the world’s first polymer banknotes were produced, in 1988, CCL Secure has been 100% focused on polymer. Nothing else. We are committed to the creation and development of polymer banknotes that last longer, cost less, and have less environmental impact than any other substrate.

All backed by outstanding levels of quality, service and innovation delivered by a global company that’s also easy to deal with on a regional and local basis.

We are the polymer banknote people. When you need to know more about how polymer could benefit you, talk to the world’s leading experts in polymer banknote technology.
