Mortsel, Belgium - Agfa is pleased to announce that it has been successful in the development and delivery of the voting cards for the General Parliament Elections in Malta held earlier this June. The innovative solution was jointly presented by the company and Attard & Co. Imaging to the Malta Electoral Commission, who selected it for the benefits resulting from using a synthetic card material and the inclusion of tamper proof security features.
Agfa's PETix PPF effectively replaces laminated paper
Until recently, the production of the Maltese voting cards required the lamination of paper cards with printed security features and personalisation data. Agfa's polyester-based PETix PPF solution delivers superior durability including water and tear resistance without the need for lamination. This considerable efficiency gain is complemented with great printability allowing the Maltese voting cards to feature multiple security prints designed with Agfa's FORTUNA High Security Design software.
"Agfa is honoured by having been assigned the Malta voting card project.", said Marc Van Damme, VP Marketing and Sales Agfa Specialty Products. "Having delivered on promise even within an advanced deadline illustrates how Agfa's competences in such divergent areas as film manufacturing as well as security print design and print management work in sync to serve customer needs."
