CARTES ID Cards Polycarbonate

Posted on Wednesday, May 6, 2015


Bayer will highlight its specialty films for secure IDs at CARTES Secure Connexions America. In particular, the company will feature its Makrofol(®) ID 332 Superlaser film. This laser-engravable film is able to boost laser personalization speeds while maintaining excellent high contrast and image quality. Other Bayer polycarbonate films specially designed for card applications include a transparent scratch- and chemical-resistant grade (Makrofol(®) ID 320 polycarbonate film), a D2T2 printable grade (Makrofol(®) ID 285 Dyefusion film) and a very thin, white film (Makrofol(®) ID white polycarbonate film) designed to cover chip modules integrated into the core of polycarbonate cards.

Professionals and decision-makers can learn more about these and other films for security and ID cards at the Bayer booth (#313) during CARTES Secure Connexions America May 5-7 in Washington, D.C.
