Published on 2017-02-20. Author : SpecialChem

PARSIPPANY, N.J., U.S.A. -- Sun Chemical will showcase its full range of magnetic tapes, screen and offset inks, brand protection solutions and electronic materials for credit and laminated cards printing during the 2017 ICMA EXPO in Orlando, Fla. on March 27-30.

“Today, plastic cards can be a key source of revenue and customer loyalty for brand owners, but it is important to keep consumer data stored in each card protected from potential fraud,” said Chris Parrilli, Vice President and Product Manager for Industrial Applications, North American Inks, Sun Chemical. “Sun Chemical’s range of inks, coatings, magnetic tapes and adhesives, to anti-counterfeiting brand protection solutions and silver/graphite conductive inks can provide a complete solution for credit and laminated card printing.”

Adhesion to Plastic Cards

Visitors of booth #306 will be introduced to Sun Chemical’s SunCarte® family of screen and offset inks, adhesives, and varnishes which offer
  • High bond strength and adherence to lamination while also providing consistent color reproduction.
  • SunCarte can also be customized to deliver various metallic finishes.
  • The line is easy to use and provides excellent adhesion to common plastics, helping printers meet the needs of the plastic card market.

Magnetic Tape - Excellent Magnetic Characteristics

Having supplied the financial sector globally with high quality magnetic tape for more than 40 years, Sun Chemical’s Advanced Materials division can provide card manufacturers with standard, color, and printed magnetic tape options (based on DIC technology) which are aesthetically attractive with high durability and reliability. DIC’s magnetic tape exhibits excellent magnetic characteristics, including high resolution and low noise with precise wave form.

Integrity and Security of ID Cards

  • Using its wide array of overt and covert brand-protection solutions, Sun Chemical can help governments and brands with strategy formulation, contingency planning, chain of custody framework and other components to ensure the integrity and security of ID cards.
  • One of many potential covert approaches that Sun Chemical offers is an infrared coding solution called Verigard™, a security system that adds a small quantity of taggants (or chemical markers) to inks, varnishes or coatings for use in any print process on any substrate. Verigard taggants have no impact on print performance or color properties because they are added in extremely low concentrations and the system is useful because cards can be authenticated immediately by using Sun Chemical’s proprietary V400 reader.
  • Credit card companies are also increasing the security of their cards through EMV technology. Sun Chemical Advanced Materials offers a variety of electronic materials options for this important space, including printed antenna and metallizations for interconnect, as well as advanced materials, such as jetable nano-silver, palladium, and gold to support the chip.
