Innovative prelaminated inlays for e-ID Cards


HID Global's card inlays provide card manufacturers with the highest level of reliability, durability and card structure design versatility. Prelaminates are available with HID SOMA chip operating systems and third-party chip operating systems.

HID Cardlam™ products are optimized to extend the finished card's lifespan​. Manufactured using patented HID’s Wire Transfer, or classic wire embedding technologies, our polycarbonate, PET and PVC prelaminates provide full protection of the electronic components.

HID Skylam™ prelaminated inlays with built-in windows provide card manufacturers with the easiest and most effective way to create a window, or several windows, in polycarbonate ID cards.

Manufacturing windows in polycarbonate ID cards is a complex, costly and waste generating operation requiring additional equipment, manual operations, and process development time. Thus, many card manufacturers face difficulties to make such high-end documents cost-efficiently with acceptable yield losses. HID Skylam makes the process simple and straight forward.
