Wide range of materials, colours and techniques

Our customers can choose from a wide range of materials. We have an extensive selection of coated textile cover materials to coated latex saturated papers. We can also offer you the option of developing a cover material specially for you. With respect to colours, the sky is the limit! Our colour experts can develop just about any colour to suit your needs.

Quality requirements

It goes without saying that an important document such as a passport must meet stringent quality requirements. All Balacron Security materials meet all these high requirements. Our cover material has a lifespan of more than 10 years. It’s able to withstand frequent use over a long period, including being folded open and shut thousands of times while retaining its strength. The national logo will always be clearly visible, and dirt and moisture hasn’t any effect on the condition of the cover material.

Quality control

Our extensive quality control programme enables us to guarantee that our products are always of the highest quality. We set very strict quality requirements for our suppliers and we subject their deliveries to thorough quality inspections. We closely monitor and check every phase in the process from the design and production to the delivery of the cover materials to our customers. We use internationally accredited test laboratories so that our customers can be sure that the products we deliver meet the specifications laid down in the tender. Every shipment comes with a Certificate of Conformity.

Invisible ink

There is an increasing demand for cover materials printed with ink that is only visible under UV light. We have all the expertise and resources required for this.


Both for the textile and for paperbased options, our security covers are perfectly suitable for incorporating a chip and an antenna. We are working with a number of professio- nal partners that can incorporate chips and antennas in our textile and paperbased covers. In case you are interested please let us know and we are able to connect you.

Production facilities

Besides the production facility of BN International in The Netherlands, BN International s.r.o. based in the Czech Republic is our most important production facility for the security cover materials.
