Design and Manufacture of Polycarbonate ID

17/05/11

The need for greater security in identity credentials has driven a number of significant changes in recent years.  One of the more significant has been a higher level of investment, both in the credentials themselves and in the  cardholder issuance systems.

In turn, this has created demand for improved return on that investment, in the  form of longer–lasting, more durable cards.

Modern ID documents are required to stand up to many types of stress, ranging from attempts at physical alteration, to years of inconsiderate handling in a variety of environments and weather conditions. Replacing damaged cards is costly. To deliver the most secure, durable and climate-resistant cards, the industry is increasingly turning to polycarbonate as the material of choice.
