Structure of passport with Covestro's Platilon solution.
Structure of passport with Covestro's Platilon solution.

Covestro introduced its new range of innovative film solutions for security documents at the 12th Security Document Summit (SDS) in Beijing, China.

Presented for the first time in China, the passport hinge solution Platilon ID 9122 won the conference's Blue Shield Award for Innovation. It enables the secure integration of polycarbonate-based data pages into e-passports, a major trend in the security document industry.

"Multi-layer TPU film Platilon ID 9122 can excellently bond with polycarbonate and ensures the data page cannot be delaminated without destruction of the passport," said Markus Mingenbach, Director and Regional Head of Covestro's Specialty Films business in Asia Pacific. "At the same time, fabric-like properties of TPU enable unlimited bends without appearance of cracks or breaks."

The melt behavior and flexibility of TPU are ideally suited to protect integrated chips and antennas. The material can be securely sewn into passport using existing standard methods.

On request, Platilon ID products can also be equipped with laser-reactive properties to integrate further security features into the fold. As with the polycarbonate data pages, it can also be personalized using standard laser engraving equipment.

The thickness of the layers in the composite films, which is thinner than for individual films, also enables greater design freedom. The data page can thus also be made thinner without sacrificing its excellent strength and flexibility. This simplifies the integration of security features, and the thinner data page also saves money.

For high security cards and e-passport data pages, Covestro highlighted the polycarbonate film Makrofol ID Superlaser at SDS 2017. Using this product, the holder's data and photo can be laser-engraved in higher contrast into the ID document than is possible for standard laser-reactive overlay films. The data are also integrated into the core, such that the film also offers better anti-forgery protection.
