Innovation in Embedding for Polycarbonate Documents
Alexandre Benjamin Thursday 08 September 12:00
Since more than a decade, more and more ID documents are made in polycarbonate. While the laser engraving of the data inside the plastic makes this type of document very durable, the expected resistance to falsification has not been matched.
Therefore, the vast majority of the polycarbonate ID documents includes an “embed” transparent holographic or DID™ patch to protect the photo from manipulation. This patch is generally applied by hot-stamping in one of the plastic layers. This “alien” material creates a physical weakness in the document and therefore refrain the use of such protection on the whole surface of the document.
A new technology, called Shape™ is now available to “spread” optical image elements on the whole surface of the document while maintaining a perfect bounding between the plastic layers. This new technology enhances the visual contrast between the optical elements and the printed elements, allows the use of several optical effects, driving to a complete new enriched design capability for high secure, easy to control ID document.
