Optimize and secure your lamination process
RFID (Radio Frequency IDentification) Prelaminated inlays (or prelam), which contain the smart cards' valuable chip and antenna, are highly sensitive to the quality of the lamination they underwent to form them.
Release materials play a key role in protecting the inlay by preventing the adhesion of its layers and shielding them from the high pressure & temperature applied during the lamination process.
Based on the unique Genuine Vegetable Parchment technology, Optilam™ is a breakthrough release material with unique antistatic properties. During the lamination, Optilam™ naturally avoids the generation of Electrostatic Discharge (ESD), for an optimal protection of the chip; which is also safer for the operators.
Designed for lamination performance
This cellulose-based composite offers very high temperature and pressure resistance which withstand the lamination process.
Optilam™ also delivers outstanding release properties, making the lay-up easier, keeping the laminates and metal plate surfaces clean and undamaged, and enabling an easy peel off after lamination.
In addition, Optilam™ has the unique ability to bring a surface structuring enabling a superior inlay quality while being clean with no loose fiber to avoid any risk of contamination of the inlay.
Optilam™’s thickness is perfectly adapted to the multiple layers structure required in the lamination presses.
