are pleased to announce the release of a new, more secure
MICR toner for Hewlett Packard 4000, 4015, 4515, 4050, 4100, 4200, 4250, 4350, 8000, 8150 and 9000 MICR-enabled
printers. This new toner carries no additional cost and will
become our standard MICR toner for these printers. Secure
MICR toner for other Hewlett Packard MICR-enabled printer
models will follow in the near future.
TROY’s patented anti-fraud technology forces a bright red
stain to appear if chemical alteration of a document is
attempted. TROY Security allows users to protect the words
and graphics printed. For MICR applications and other
financial documents a new generation of TROY MICR Toner,
TROYMICR Toner Secure™, is becoming the new benchmark in
anti-fraud cheque printing. For standard applications (i.e.
education transcripts, medical records, legal documents,
etc.) TROY Security Toner adds a cost-effective new layer of
security to your sensitive documents.
Why did TROY and Marinter Systems decide to add this new
feature for Australia?
Offering this new feature with our product line will provide
customers with an extra layer of security to protect against
document fraud and chemical alteration of documents. Fraud
costs companies millions of dollars each year; TROY and
Marinter’s goal is to help protect our customers against
fraudulent alteration of documents.
How is this going to help prevent cheque fraud?
TROY Secure MICR Toner contains a hidden red security agent
within the toner; if chemical alteration is attempted on
your document a red stain will appear.
What does “Secure” mean?
Secure simply means that we are adding a feature to help
combat cheque fraud. TROY and Marinter Systems are being
proactive in helping our customers protect themselves
against chemical alteration.
How will YOU benefit from added Security?
TROY’s new feature protects your MICR documents from
chemical alteration* without requiring additional equipment
or reconfiguration to your Hewlett Packard MICR-enabled
printer. The simplicity of this solution allows for seamless
integration with your current printing process.
*Any solvent that will remove the toner will release the
active red agent, which is embedded in the toner.
What is chemical alteration?
Chemical alteration, also known as cheque washing, is the
process of removing elements from a cheque through chemical
means allowing the ability to reprint information. Criminals
typically use a common household chemical to perform this
type of alteration. Chemical alteration is difficult to
detect at the first point of contact, therefore, it is
important to help protect against this threat.
