Its thinness is what makes PET so durable.
Most plastic cards are 30 mil thick. PET is only 8-10 mil thick. Because of this, PET
cards can be bent and curled and still snap back to shape. Of the three materials listed
above, PET is the strongest.
PET Card Features:
- Thin & Light Weight
- Durable & Reliable
- Versatile & Flexible
- Environmentally Friendly
The layering system of PET cards.
Besides being durable, PET is also the most environmental.
The most commonly used material today is PVC, or Polyvinyl Chloride. PVC is thick, brittle,
inflexible, and toxic. During use, production, and disposal of this material
harmful dioxins are produced. Dioxins are hazardous substances to the earth. PET does
not produce dioxins.
PET cards are long lasting. Paper cards are flimsy,
permeable, and short-lived. You cannot reuse or update paper gift certificates. Instead
paper tears, creases, and wears out easily. Nor do paper cards have the impressive graphic
quality that PET has, such as high resolution, hologram, or foil options.
PET can embed information magnetically within its layering structure.
Laminates like paper and the others don't have any security of information. They are not multi-purpose
products, like PET cards. They cannot be used for several different applications simultaneously,
like PET cards can. Laminates are one-time use products, limited to one visual application.
Why have several different laminated cards when only one PET card is enough?
By far the most effective and cost-efficient
choice of the cards is the PET card.
