3M Security Systems has introduced the 3M Polycarbonate Security Film for laser personalization, which offers customers a solution for polycarbonate ID cards and passports.
The laser-engraveable film layers necessary to create polycarbonate ID cards and passport data pages are available with 3M Security Systems proprietary security materials incorporated, such as the company’s clear to cyan, holographic and floating image technologies. 3M Polycarbonate Security Film is the latest addition to 3M’s portfolio of overt, covert and forensic security material products.
Available in multiple widths and dimensions to meet specific credentialing needs, the film is compatible with conventional printing equipment. Clear, laser-engraveable and opaque white formulations allow additional customization in the construction of the card, and the film also offers the ability to print prior to lamination with polycarbonate printing presses and inks.
The films are compatible with Teslin substrates, CLI/MLI holograms, PC-specific inks, smart card electronics and 3M-approved security films, and can be constructed to meet many customers’ specific laser-engraving credential needs.
