IQ Structures´ "holographic wallpaper" offers full-face protection for polycarbonate documents
Innovative concept enables creating national layouts for all documents
By: IQ Structures
From a technical point of view, the concept is based on adding a holographic layer between polycarbonate layers during the ID card lamination, without using adhesive. "Holographic wallpaper" therefore protects the entire area of the card. A national holographic wallpaper can be created, with a graphical pattern using national symbols. One national holographic wallpaper will protect all identity documents, such as ID card, passport and driving license.
Holographic wallpaper answers the most frequent challenges of polycarbonate documents protection.
HOLOGRAM REMOVAL. New IQ Structures´ product consists of thousands of tiny pieces. During lamination, melted polycarbonate flows through the hologram and a single homogeneous unit is created. Any attempt for its removal thus results in an irreversible disintegration of holograms.
ALTERING (FORGING) OF PARTICULAR INFORMATION. Holographic protection covers the entire card, including all data.
TARGETING INSUFFICIENTLY TRAINED GUARDS. It is much easier to learn visual effects if there is a single national holographic wallpaper on all documents.

Robert Dvorak, Business Development Director in IQ Structures: "Creating a new document is a lengthy process of preparation of holographic design, master and foil and integration of them in the polycarbonate document. Each document goes through this process separately and with a new design. Our solution enables to have on stock the holographic foil with a unique wallpaper holographic pattern tailor-made according to the national symbolism and use it for production of any document in any production lay-out within one country. Savings in cost and time are obvious, which was our target when developing this concept."
