Examination of the new 50 Swiss Franc banknote

Tagesanzeiger.ch/Newsnet wanted to know: What can the new 50 note withstand? They commissioned Ugra’s testing laboratory to carry out three tests with the brand new banknote. In the first, washing in the washing machine at 60 degrees was simulated. This was followed by the ironing test, and finally a banknote was crumpled with the help of a balloon. How does that work? And what was the result? You can see in the video.

Test methods:
  • Waschmaschinentest, 60 °C, 10 min.
  • Ironing test, 120 °C, 2 min.
  • Crumpling test, 20 cycles
