- SECURITY & ID CARD FILMS
Updated on 11/09/2021
SABIC offers a high-performance polycarbonate LEXAN™ SD film portfolio specially designed for electronic ID cards, government, military and police ID cards, passport data pages, green cards, border crossing cards and driver’s licenses. LEXAN Secure ID film portfolio includes a clear lasermarkable layer, co-extruded layers, a bright white core layer, flexible coated overlays and a clear overlay grades for the cover or intermediate layers. These films deliver tight gauge tolerances to simplify manufacturing of cards within mandated thickness parameters providing our customers significantly higher productivity. Thanks to the low and controlled shrinkage of LEXAN films, Smart card, passport and ID card manufacturers can use heat and pressure to join all layers together to form a card that cannot be pulled apart, preventing risk for disassembly, helping not only to extend the card’s service life but also better protect security features inside it. They also provide high performance, exceptional durability and resistance to abrasive cleaning agents and to the chemicals found in sun creams, cosmetics, oils, greases and fuels.
- High temperature resistance - Low shrinkage for improved flatness - Optimized textures for printing, hot stamping and lamination - Tight gauge tolerance for controlled stack tolerance after lamination - High optical quality - Maximum opacity - Excellent laser markability
