  • Patent number: 10572782
    Abstract: A portable data carrier is composed of several foils, wherein the data carrier has a three-dimensional high embossing on at least one of its outsides. At least one foil containing at least one additive is arranged in the region of the high embossing. The additive has a dichroic property such that the additive reflects a different color in dependence on the viewing angle.

  • Publication number: 20140125050
    Abstract: A sheet document is based on a one-pieced, coextruded composite strip layer having a thickness of 10 to 110 ?m defining over its area at least two different materials that are configured side by side as strips. At least one of the strips is transparent or translucent and at least one strip opaque. On the composite strip layer there is applied an ink-receiving layer and/or a printed pattern that has a recess that at least partly is configured above a transparent/translucent strip and together with the non-covered region of the transparent/translucent strip forms a window.

  • Patent number: 8695883
    Abstract: A data carrier card and a method for producing a data carrier card, in particular a chip card or magnetic stripe card. The data carrier card has a card body having one or several foils, where the foil or at least one of the foils is a coextruded foil having at least two areas with different material properties. The use of coextruded foils makes it possible to form in a simple manner different areas in the card body which differ from each other in material quality. In particular, it is possible to form for example a data carrier card with a card body having a plurality of alternating opaque and transmissive strips or with window strips and/or windows enclosed in the surface of the card body.
