  • Publication number: 20200198390
    Abstract: The present disclosure refers to a method for manufacturing a secured window in an identification card. The method comprising embedding information in a transparent window of the identification card and covering the embedded information with a thermochromic layer on a first side of the transparent window. The thermochromic layer is configured to become substantially transparent when subjected to a level of heat greater than a determined threshold value. In addition the method comprises the step of covering a second side of the transparent window, opposite to the first side, with a further thermochromic layer, the further thermographic layer being configured to become substantially transparent when subjected to a level of heat greater than the determined threshold value, such that the embedded information becomes visible through the transparent window when both sides of the window are exposed to the level of heat greater than the determined threshold value.

  • Publication number: 20200202080
    Abstract: The method comprises a pre-lamination step wherein a layer is placed in contact at least on one side with a lamination plate having a recess and the layer undergoes lamination such that a raised portion is formed on the layer; an assembling step wherein another layer is placed in contact with the layer, and the raised portion of the layer is at least partially placed in an opening of the other layer and a lamination step wherein said layers are laminated together.

  • Patent number: 7967341
    Abstract: An interleaf is disclosed, as well as a process and device for producing an interleaf, in particular for a book-like identification document. At least one additional layer (26) made of thermally resistant plastics is laminated onto at least one layer (24) made of thermoplastic elastomer, a section (42) of the at least one additional layer (24) being integrated into a folding region (31) without producing a thickened region on the outer side of the at least one layer (24) made of thermoplastic elastomer.

  • Publication number: 20040173377
    Abstract: The invention relates to a carrier foil for electronic components, for laminating inside chip cards comprising at least one strip conductor (2) arranged on a carrier foil body and provided with connection regions (3, 4, 5, 6) consisting of a conductive material and used to connect to other electronic components or connecting bridges. Said connection regions (3, 4, 5, 6) comprise a plurality of interconnected partial surfaces (7) consisting of said conductive material, and free surfaces (8) which are arranged between said partial surfaces and which are not coated with said conductive material. The inventive embodiment enables deformation resulting from the difference between the expansion capacity of the carrier foil material and that of the connection region material to be reduced and simultaneously the adhesion forces between a plastic cover and the actual carrier foil material to be increased in the connection regions.

  • Patent number: 5459499
    Abstract: A hydrophobing agent (30) includes chain-like, cross-linkable, halogen-containing copolymers, a cross-linking agent, where the cross-linking agent enters into cross-linking bonds with the copolymers, and at least two solvents with differing boiling points. The weight of the components and the boiling points of the solvents are provided such that the first solvent is substantially already evaporated upon application on the surface (9) to be coated, whereas the second solvent evaporates substantially only after the application onto the surface (9) under formation of a hydrophobically acting layer attached to the surface (9).
