Fargo High Durable HDP Film

HID Global’s High Durable HDP film is an ideal solution for organizations looking to instantly issue payment, loyalty, ID, and other types of cards that are highly-durable and virtually tamper-proof. In fact, the film’s more resilient chemistry extends abrasion resistance up to three times that of the current industry standard.

Cards featuring High Durable HDP film last two to four years longer than traditional cards using re-transfer films.

Furthermore, the High Durable film eliminates the need for additional investments in separate lamination hardware and protective card overlaminates. By forgoing these additional products, organizations can, thus, reduce the cost of card personalization equipment by up to 45%, and materials by 25% or more.

Additionally, High Durable HDP film is fully compatible with inhibit panel technology. This enables customers to apply exclusion zones for such card features as magnetic stripes, signature panels, IC chips, and surface holograms.

Extremely Durable, Abrasion Resistant, Non-laminate Id Card Film

Extend card life with enhanced durability – Using new and advanced materials, the High Durable High Definition Printing (HDP®) film is three times more durable than standard re-transfer films. Moreover, with greater abrasion resistance, this new film can extend traditional card life by two to four years.

Improve card security with tamper proof barrier – High Durable HDP film is permanently fused to the surface of the card, from edge-to-edge, making it virtually resistant to forgery.

Minimize costs using an integrated solution – High Durable HDP film significantly reduces production and IT investments. This is because it eliminates the need for separate lamination hardware and additional consumables. In addition, the film works seamlessly with HID Global’s FARGO® HDP5000, HDPii Plus and HDP8500 printers/encoders.
