Steel Credit Card

Man Holding Custom Coated Credit Card

When a high-end financial institution approached us at Coating Systems with an opportunity to work on a credit card, we took it. Our job was to develop a magnetic chemical coating that would allow the card to support a magnetic strip, a hologram, and a signature panel. Using standard plastic credit card manufacturing methods, we fashioned such a chemical coating, but suitable for a steel, rather than a plastic, credit card. The result was a coating that was more durable than standard coatings, it was less expensive than standard coatings, and it was better suited for frequent swiping.
