  • Teslin Card Grades
  • Uncut, blank sheets
  • Blank precut cards: collated in singles, or on micro-perforated sheets
  • Background printing (with design option)

Teslin media combines the printability of paper with the durability & waterproof of synthetics to deliver an astonishing array of qualities.  It is a white, single-layer, microporous, silica-filled film that bonds readily and firmly with inks, toners, coatings and laminates.

Teslin Card Media [has digital print capability no other synthetic paper has]

We supply four grades of this media.  

Unlike PVC cards, Teslin cards can be bent, peeled, pulled or scratched without breakage or delamination

Key Features

  • Security printable (smart chip technology, foil stamping, magnetic stripe, barcoding, anti-counterfeit bleeds & backgrounds, invisible UV ink, other technologies)
  • Excellent chemical, toxicity, tear- and abrasion resistance
  • Easily folded, embossed, glued, grommeted, punched, drilled, perforated, sewed, guillotine trimmed, hand & foil stamped, slit, and die-cut with precise corners
  • Excellent laminate bond strength without edge over-lamination. The laminating plastic flows directly into Teslin's matrix, causing a mechanical bond.  No edge seal required after lamination. (Hot or cold laminating films can be used, with or without UV blocking film.  UV blocking film may be used for added protection of dye printed images
    against fading from exposure to sunlight).
  • Dimensionally stable & resistant to warpage with temperature and humidity.
  • Hand writable and printable with fade resistant and machine-readable ink/toner systems. (Inks & toners are locked into the surface of your cards almost instantly, bonding into the sheet structure and leaving excellent print definition).
  • Exceptional wet strength, durability and waterproof properties.
  • Covert/overt security features can be embedded at the manufacturing stage and/or applied thereafter to enhance the benefits of its inherent tamper resistance & tamper evidence.

Superb reception to overprint coatings/vanishes for gloss enhancement, stain and edge fusion resistance, and resistance to decolouration from absorption of environmental impurities
