Chicago Heights, IL, USA and Rousset, France (PRWEB) June 06, 2016
Following extensive testing performed by Smart Packaging Solutions’ (SPS) R&D Lab, ITW Brand Identity Division is proud to announce that its Premium and Advantage HoloLam Plus® full-face metallic and holographic laminates deliver EMV-like performance with dual interface transaction cards. Because HoloLam Plus laminates do not interfere with the RFID signal, banks are able to create eye-catching, top-of-wallet card designs while utilizing the latest card technology.
SPS test results show that when used in conjunction with SPS’s eBoost PAY® solution, Premium and Advantage HoloLam Plus laminates provide the same RF performance as cards that do not contain foil. Advantage HoloLam Plus also eliminates electrostatic discharge (ESD).
HoloLam Plus full-face laminates are used to create some of the world’s most distinctive cards and can also be used to build in a variety of security features. Available in standard metallized and holographic diffraction patterns as well as custom designs, HoloLam Plus laminates are process-friendly, print-receptive, and engineered to meet or exceed ISO/IEC 7810 peel strength for secure and non-secure transaction cards.
Part of the French group Imprimerie Nationale, SPS is a world leader in dual interface banking and e-ID documents. SPS brings value to its customers by pre-certifying the performance of cards using its technology and guaranteeing card functionality in the field.
