BioPVC are biodegradable CR-80 cards, credit card size, 0.030 in. (30 mil) white, in pack of 500. Replaces standard PVC cards.
BioPVC cards perform just like standard 100% PVC cards. They maintain their integrity under normal, everyday use: they can get wet, be stored on a shelf or in a wallet, be printed on or UV-treated. Biodegradation takes place only when the cards are in a fertile environment in which microorganisms are present (e.g., soil, compost, trash dump, water, etc.). Earth-friendly Bio PVC cards are made of 99% PVC that fully biodegrades within nine months to five years of continual exposure to microorganisms.
BioPVC cards are graphic quality and are the standard, most commonly used plastic card size, measuring 3.375' x 2.125' (the size of a credit card) and 30 mil thick. CR80 30 mil BioPVC cards are also known as CR8030 or CR80.030 bio cards. The new BioPVC cards can be used with any of the extensive range of desktop card printers available on the market today.
Bio CR8030 cards are packaged in five shrink-wrapped packs of 100, for a total of 500 blank ID cards, and are vision inspected to ensure quality.Plus-Card Bio- the first of a series of environmentally
conscious plastic cards for the desktop market.
BioPVC is the response to the properties of normal plastics
which last forever when discarded into the environment and add to the
landfill problem. Unlike normal PVC cards, BioPVC is manufactured with revolutionary material that completely
biodegrades within 1 to 5 years after constant exposure to a
fertile environment where microorganisms are present; these include
compost, landfill, the ground, lakes, river and the ocean. All that
is left behind is matter that can easily be worked into the soil or
water and has no toxic effect to the surrounding environment.
Best of all, BioPVC will perform exactly like the current PVC cards that
are currently in use. Under normal every day usage the cards
maintain their integrity and can get wet, be stored as usual,
off-set, litho and silk screen printed, foil stamped, die-cut, and
embossed without breaking down.
