Rewritable Plastic Cards
Rewritable Plastic Cards are for use with Rewrite Card Printers such as the Evolis Tattoo RW and the Datacard SP25 Plus. Rewritable printing technology does not require a ribbon to personalise cards. The card itself holds a thermosensitive material that turns visible when heated to a temperature of 356°F (180°C) and then rapidly cooled. The application of a lower temperature, generally in the 230-320°F (110-160°C) range will erase any colour pattern. This process leverages two chemicals that interact with each other according to selected temperature thresholds.
This heating-cooling process is handled thanks to a thermal head, similar to the one used in other plastic card printers. Note that this process can be rolled back, allowing the same card to be reused and reprinted up to 500 times.
Cards are available in packs of 100, with a choice of blue or black print, and also with a PVC back and rewritable front – See Product Options below.
