Unichroma™ ribbon / Print polycarbonate cards with direct-to-card printers

Polycarbonate cards are ideal for applications where longevity and higher security is mandatory. Used in Evolis Securion printer, the Unichroma™ ribbon provides a cost-saving solution for your highly secure cards.

Durability & printing quality

The Unichroma™ ribbon is formulated to produce sharp, bright images and clear text on many card substrates, including Polycarbonate (PC). In addition to the standard colors (Yellow, Magenta, Cyan and Black), a protective layer is applied on the card, to retain a high quality of image despite its frequent use. Printed cards can, therefore, be used for several years without deteriorating.

High security ensured

The Unichroma™ ribbon is designed for highly secure applications: national ID cards, drivers’ licenses, passports, immigration cards, military access control badges, etc. Compatible with hologram and lamination technologies, the Unichroma™ ribbon guarantees the maximum level of security for your cards so as to prevent any attempt of counterfeiting.

Cost-effective solution

The Unichroma™ ribbon (UcYMCK) is suitable for use in Securion, the Evolis desktop card printer designed for the issuance of secure cards. This combination makes personalization of secure Polycarbonate cards affordable, thus offering an alternative to more expensive equipment like retransfer technology.
