IDP 659398 Patch Laminate with Smart Card Cut-out works with IDP Smart-51L laminating printers. Laminate (also referred to as overlaminate) provides a layer of protection over your printed cards, making them more durable and providing protection from wear and fading. The IDP Smart Cut is designed specifically for smart cards with an embedded smart chip. The cut-out keeps the smart chip free of laminate to ensure functionality isn't compromised .
A patch laminate like the 659398 leaves the outer edge of an ID card unlaminated, but patch laminates are thicker and more durable than full-coverage laminates. The 659398 Hologram Patch Laminate is 1 mil thick, offering the highest density of laminate possible.
An IDP Smart-51 printer with lamination capability is needed in order to use the IDP 659398 hologram lamination ribbon. IDP laminating card printers require a special overlaminate to function properly. To ensure printer performance and guarantee card quality, use only genuine IDP laminate ribbons. IDP 659398 is compatible with IDP Smart-51 laminating printers.
