Fargo 82608 PolyGuard Laminate - Half Patch - 250 imprints Details
Genuine Fargo 82608 1.0 mil clear magnetic stripe laminate decreases wear-and-tear on your printed cards, protects them from fading, and increased card durability by adding a layer of protection to them. (Note: laminate is sometimes also referred to as overlaminate or overlamination.)
Fargo 82608 clear laminates are specially designed for cards with a magnetic stripe, allowing for maximum laminate coverage and protection of the card while leaving the magnetic stripe exposed. The 82608 laminate applies a half-patch laminate on the magnetic stripe side, or back side, or the card.
In order to laminate a card with the Fargo 82608 laminate, a printer with lamination capability is required.
To maintain the warranty on your Fargo printer, optimize the use of your printer, and maximize the quality of your printed cards, use only genuine Fargo 82608 laminate ribbons.
Did you know that Fargo 82608 laminates have a shelf life?
Laminate ribbons typically have a shelf life of up to one year, when stored under the proper conditions. Laminates that are not store properly, and are more than one year old, will not print optimally and will likely end up costing more time in maintenance and more money in reprinting cards.
As an authorized Fargo reseller, ID Zone guarantees that our genuine Fargo 82608 clear laminates are stored properly and are always 'fresh',
How to find the shelf life?
Look for the manufactured date on the sticker on the box, which is above the part number. If this date is over one year in the past, then your ribbon is past its shelf life.
Fargo's PolyGaurd 82608 lamination material is a secure, tamper-resistant overlaminate. PolyGaurd laminates provide exceptional durability with independent tests showing cards protected with PolyGuard overlamination can withstand 50,000 swipes through a magnetic stripe reader before showing signs of wear. This is compared to competitive cards, where, only after 300 swipes, the cards began to show wear.
PolyGuard is an ideal choice for applications that require a long, highly secure card life.
