What are PVC cards?

  • What are PVC cards?
    PVC cards, short for Polyvinyl Chloride cards, are plastic cards commonly used for various purposes such as identification, access control, membership cards, gift cards, and more. They are durable, flexible, and can be customized with printing, embossing, or encoding to suit different needs.
  • PVC cards are widely used in industries like banking, hospitality, healthcare, education, and transportation due to their versatility and affordability. They come in different sizes and thicknesses, and can be printed with various designs, logos, and information using techniques like offset printing, digital printing, or thermal transfer printing.
  • What is the difference between PVC and plastic cards?
    "PVC" and "plastic" are often used interchangeably, but PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride) is actually a type of plastic. So when people refer to PVC cards, they are essentially referring to plastic cards. However, not all plastic cards are made from PVC; there are other types of plastics as well.
  • The main difference between PVC cards and other plastic cards lies in the material used. PVC cards are specifically made from polyvinyl chloride, which is a widely used type of plastic known for its durability, flexibility, and ease of printing. Other types of plastic cards could be made from materials like polyester (PET), polycarbonate (PC), or composite materials.
  • In terms of usage, PVC cards are commonly used for applications such as ID cards, membership cards, access control cards, and gift cards due to their cost-effectiveness and ease of customization. Other types of plastic cards may have specific advantages or properties that make them more suitable for certain applications, such as enhanced durability or tamper resistance.
