TECHNICAL DATA - PASSPORT LAMINATES

DESCRIPTION:

Ultra thin passport laminate in sheet format for manual insertion to a paper passport page.

THICKNESS:

6 +/- 30% micron after lamination to paper page (carrier removed)

PRINTING:

Passport paper bio data sheet will be personalized with special printers either directly on the adhesive side (mirror printing) or on the bio data page. Laminate to adhere to bio data page by heat and pressure. Adhesion to passport paper to be tested and qualified using a passport laminator.

LAMINATION TEMPERATURE:

Lamination temperature on adhesive/paper interface to be 120° Celsius +/- 7° C

RESISTANCE TO ALTERATIONS:

Lamination under normal and approved lamination conditions will deliver a strong adhesion of the laminate to the paper. Normal wears and tears during a 10 – year life cycle. The film is fragile and will break the holographic/printed features or tear paper fiber during an attempt for separation from paper data sheet.

FORMAT:

-A4 sheet (210 x 297 mm) with 1, 2, or 4 passport laminates and perforation   between laminates for separation after personalization.
-Sewn in format: Typical 260 x 100 mm with a perforation on the top for sewn   in applications.
-Individual Sheets: 130 x 90 mm
-Roll Format: Typical 95 wide, number of images per roll depends on   lamination equipment being used.
  Other formats and sizes available upon request.
