Abstract. Prepared by the Taylor – Ulitovsky technique, the glass-coated microwires are formed from a metallic core, with the diameter 3 to 50 μm, surrounded by an insulating layer from glass, with the thickness of 1 to 20 μm. Embedded in the cellulose matrix, the ferromagnetic glass-coated microwires allow their use as security element for the authentication of valuable papers in the electronic validation process. The authentication of the security paper is realised with a special detector, by “YES” or “NO” answer. This paper can be used as anti-shoplifting or validating elements to identify the counterfeit products. The paper presents the experimental results related to the retention of ferromagnetic microwires in the cellulose matrix, a complex process characterised by specific features, primarily due to the shape and diameter/length ratio of the microwires. The ferromagnetic retention yield was η = 65 – 90%, for the prepared papers with basis weight more than 50 g/m2.
