testing_focusStandard: ISO/IEC 7810 Identification cards — Physical characteristics

Type of test: durability compliance

Purpose: Measures bond strength of clear plastic overlay affixed to most card products

Significance: Cards that have overlays with weak Peel Strength are prone to delamination before their expiry date. This can have the detrimental effect of lowering the value of the Card Issuer's brand, as well as the possibility of causing transport problems within automated card processing equipment.
