AUSTRIACARD is always improving production processes and materials; as for example delamination with time had been one major issue during the standard life cycle of a card. Our card technology experts developed a new overlay coating tripling the bonding strength between the layers of a card compared to standard overlay coating; even under extreme conditions with exposure to humidity or extended mechanical stress. The overlay coating was made the new standard overlay for all AUSTRIACARD products.
We recognize that our customers do not relay solely on a card’s functionality but the card is used also as marketing instrument. A wide range of card features and/or alternative materials are available at AUSTRIACARD to enhance our design experience. AUSTRIACARD’s specialised graphic team not only will assist in choosing or enhancing the card design with the right feature, but may also undertake the complete creative design process on behalf of our customers in full adherence to all the payment schemes’ design guidelines.
