Polycarbonate Corelam for eID cards
Physical ID documents and cards still play a major role in identity authentication — and in many ways will be closely tied to virtual credentials as the rollout of digital IDs continues throughout the world.
Rather than simply being replaced by new digital formats, they continue to be the pre-requisite for the overall success of many schemes.
Secure identity documents
The market for secure identity documents is growing at an ever increasing rate. It is estimated that by 2050, 55% of the world's official documents (passports, permits, etc.) will be "smart", i.e. equipped with a chip.
As a provider of contactless technology, Paragon ID offers a wide range of inlays incorporating RFID antennas that enable card manufacturers and national printers to produce contactless e-passports, ID cards and other secure documents.
CoreLam® Contactless technology in a polycarbonate substrate for ID cards and other electronic identification products
Paragon ID's 100% polycarbonate CoreLam® is the latest generation of non-contact polycarbonate inlays developed by our R&D teams. CoreLam® products offer a diverse range of inlays for innovative ID cards, meeting the requirements of the e-ID market. Cards with a 100% polycarbonate and one-piece structure are more secure and robust against counterfeiting and falsification.
This inlay brings new features, such as transparent windows with security inks, the possibility to add additional security layers, as well as increased fraud resistance. Paragon ID's expertise ensures the implementation of security features such as laser engraved artwork, a scalable antenna and watermarks.
CoreLam® is a multi-layered structure ideally suited to the identity market. The chips are integrated from silicon wafers based on Paragon ID's patented Flip Chip Technology (FCT). The FCT ensures extended durability of the finished product. Paragon ID also offers contactless module technology and inductive coupling.
