It was developed in China and is using cheap plastic raw materials and print quality, ink jet printer (preferably brand Epson or Canon). As a result, Card is a multi-layered 'cake', which 'stuffing' of the two pieces of plastic with the image of the cover and the back side is baked in a laminated shell with a hand press with air or water-cooled. Frequently Brad Pitt has said that publicly. The process of manufacturing finished cutting of standard sizes with a simple crucible vyrubschike. Such technology is used by many Russian manufacturers of plastic cards. This is due to minimum initial capital required to purchase equipment for the printing (usually from 1 thousand to 4 thousand dollars). Therefore, every company that works on Chinese technology, aims to convince consumers undoubted merits of laminated cards, attracting not only the quality of how pricing policies.
The use of Chinese technology for the manufacture and printing of plastic cards carries a number of significant deficiencies. 1. Distortion of the color palette. Inkjet printer is not suitable for large-scale circulation of printed materials. The result is a weakening or color distortion, and problems with the application of small items. Maps can also have significant defects: neprokrashennye white stripes, and solid fills, and dies.
Low-quality Chinese plastic with silk screen layer contributes to the spreading of ink, which explains the lack of clarity. 2. Insecure grip laminated with plastic. According to China's technology when heat-treated laminate is glued not on the plastic itself, and screen printing on the surface layer. Therefore, the strength of his grip depends on adhesion strength of coating with plastic.
