Nevada Classicure PC Inks for Plastic (2.2#)
These inks are specially formulated to give excellent adhesion when printing and laminating plastic cards without primer.
The lamination process used to manufacture plastic cards involves heat and pressure to form a sandwich of core plastic and adhesive coated overlay films. The most popular plastic currently used for the printed core of the card is PVC, although other materials are gaining popularity. In some cases just one sheet of core plastic is printed, but if high quality print is required on both sides of the card two sheets of PVC are printed, each on the best side, and sandwiched together. In both methods a clear plastic overlay film, is applied to both sides of the printed core plastic. This overlay film has an adhesive applied to one side. The resulting sandwich is placed in a special press between polished stainless steel plates and bonded together using heat and pressure. All layers, including the inks must bond together well with equal strength.
