There are many different security inks that can protect printed materials. One of the most commonly used is invisible ink that is revealed when a document is placed under a black light. Other security inks include thermochromic ink, solvent sensitive ink, magnetic ink, biometric ink, water-based fugitive ink and secondary fluorescing ink.
