In security applications, traditional Teslin substrate

  • Exhibits inherent tamper-resistant / tamper-evident character for a “first-line-of-defense”
  • Enhances the durability of all-polycarbonate (PC) or all-polyvinyl chloride (PVC) cards when used as composite-card print layer(s), retaining laser engraving or embossing capability 
  • Extends the service life of e-passports, e-cards, and RFID cards, tags and labels by cushioning and protecting antennas and integrated chips (ICs)
  • Resists tearing, abrasion, and chemical attack 
  • Provides thermal stability required for in-mold packaging applications 
  • Can be readily printed with photos, microtext, bar codes, and security inks using a variety of technologies including security printing and digital personalization 
  • Forms adhesive bonds that are 2-10X as strong as those of paper or other plastics, resisting delamination 

Offers the flexibility of platen or high-throughput roll lamination
