Magnetic stripe card
Our magnetic stripe cards are made of high strength
pvc. They are weather proof, very wear-resistant and
have a certain flexibility.
Usually, one side of the plastic card has the magnetic
stripe, message about use, terms and conditions or perhaps
directions such as inserting the card in the right direction,
valid on a certain day, offers a certain discount, etc.
The other side has the attractive face including basic
information about the business
The stripe is made up of tiny magnetic particles in
a resin. The particles are either applied directly to
the card or made into a stripe on a plastic backing
which is then applied to the card.
Standard low coercivity ( Lo Co)stripes use iron oxide
as the material to make the particles, high coercivity
( Hi Co) stripes are made from other materials like
barium ferrite. These materials are mixed with a resin
to form a uniform slurry which is then coated onto a
substrate. In the case of a credit card or similar application
the slurry is usually coated onto a wide plastic sheet
and dried. The coating is very thin and the plastic
allows the coating to be handled. It is then sliced
into stripe widths and applied to the card during the
card manufacturing process.
