Composite magnetic stripe cards are ideal for applications where the cards will be frequently swiped or needs to have a long life, such as access control and/or time and attendance cards.
High coercivity mag stripes store information more securely than low coercivity magnetic stripe cards because of the higher level of magnetic energy required to encode them. This also makes information on hico mag stripe cards harder to erase and more resistant to damage from magnets or magnetic fields. Composite magnetic stripe cards are designed for use in card printers with encoding capabilities.
Made of 60% PVC and 40% PET, composite PET PVC cards are more durable than standard PVC cards, making them ideal for use when cards will be frequently handled or used in harsh environments. Composite cards are also recommended for use in laminating and retransfer printers because they are more resistant to heat than standard PVC cards, as standard PVC cards may warp form the intense heat used in both of these processes. Composite cards are ideal for use in both direct-to-card printers and retransfer printers.
CR8030 HiCo composite cards are graphic quality and are the standard, most commonly used plastic card size, measuring 3.375'' x 2.125'' (the size of a credit card) and 30 mil thick.
CR80 30 mil composite cards are also known as CR8030 or CR80.030 PVC-PET cards. Composite CR8030 hico cards are packaged in five shrink-wrapped packs of 100, for a total of 500 blank ID cards, and are vision inspected to ensure quality.
