Overview 

Part # R5F009NAA

Unichroma™ ribbon / Print polycarbonate cards with direct-to-card printers

Polycarbonate cards are ideal for applications where longevity and higher security is mandatory. Used in Evolis Primacy Lamination and Core printers, the Unichroma™ ribbon provides a cost-saving solution for your highly secure cards.

Durability & printing quality

The Unichroma™ ribbon is formulated to produce sharp, bright images and clear text on many card substrates, including Polycarbonate (PC). In addition to the standard colors (Yellow, Magenta, Cyan and Black), a protective layer is applied on the card, to retain a high quality of image despite its frequent use. Printed cards can, therefore, be used for several years without deteriorating.

High security ensured

The Unichroma™ ribbon is designed for highly secure applications: national ID cards, drivers’ licenses, passports, immigration cards, military access control badges, etc. Compatible with hologram and lamination technologies, the Unichroma™ ribbon guarantees the maximum level of security for your cards so as to prevent any attempt of counterfeiting.

Cost-effective solution

Offering an alternative to more expensive equipment such as Retransfer technology, the Unichroma™ ribbon (UcYMCK) make the issuance cost of Polycarbonate cards extremely attractive.

Unichroma™ ribbons contain a dry coating (Uc) supplied on a color ribbon as a panel that is printed in advance of the following Y, M, C, K panels. The clear, colorless
coating (Uc) is applied directly to the surface of the card using a normal direct-to-card printer. Then, D2T2 (Dye Diffusion Thermal Transfer)
color personalization can continue in the normal way (single or double-sided printing).
