Title (EN) PLASTIC CARD PRINTING WITH THERMALLY TRANSFERRABLE ADHESIVE
(FR) IMPRESSION DE CARTE PLASTIQUE AVEC ADHÉSIF TRANSFÉRABLE THERMIQUEMENT
Abstract:
(EN) A plastic card is printed on by transferring an adhesive to a surface of the plastic card from a thermal transfer ribbon using a thermal printhead. A donor material is then applied over the transferred adhesive to adhere the donor material to the card surface with portions of the card surface not containing the transferred adhesive not being covered by the donor material. The techniques described herein permit the addition of high value features, such as three dimensional features, matte finishes, metallic or metallic appearing features, optical structures, and the like, to the surfaces of plastic cards. In addition, the techniques described herein can be integrated into existing card processing systems, such as central issuance card processing systems, that use thermal printing technology.
(FR) Une carte plastique est imprimée par transfert d'un adhésif sur une surface de la carte plastique à partir d'un ruban de transfert thermique à l'aide d'une tête d'impression thermique. Un matériau donneur est ensuite appliqué sur l'adhésif transféré pour faire adhérer le matériau donneur à la surface de la carte, des parties de la surface de carte ne contenant pas l'adhésif transféré n'étant pas recouvertes par le matériau donneur. Les techniques décrites dans la présente invention permettent l'ajout d'éléments de valeur élevée, tels que des éléments tridimensionnels, des finitions de mat, des éléments métalliques ou d'aspect métallique, des structures optiques, et analogues, aux surfaces de cartes plastiques. En outre, les techniques décrites dans la présente invention peuvent être intégrées dans des systèmes de traitement de cartes existants, tels que des systèmes de traitement de cartes d'émission centrale, qui utilisent une technologie d'impression thermique.
