Green Touch for Magnetic Stripes: NVLine Magnetics®

Environmentally-friendly plastic - a contradiction in terms? We’ve met this challenge and created the environmentally-friendly NVLine Magnetics®, the world’s first magnetic stripe that is applied to a substrate with recycled content. After application, the PET carrier is completely removed and can be recycled. What’s more, we produce our magnetic stripes using a hot stamping process that is particularly energy- and resource-friendly. We strive to continuously develop for a better tomorrow.

  • Substrate on 30% recycled PET
  • No PET transfer to your card
  • Environmentally-friendly hot stamping

Sustainable Finishing for a Positive Environmental Balance


We take our ecological and social responsibility seriously and are always working on reconciling care for the environment with innovative technologies. Compliance with European standards is a matter of course for us. We can also look back on a number of successful developments that strengthen sustainability, starting with the selection of raw materials and ending with environmentally-friendly processes.

  • No processing of toxic or carcinogenic substances
  • Exclusive use of raw materials whose heavy metal content of cadmium, lead, mercury, and chromium (VI) complies with Directive 94/62/EC (packaging and packaging waste) and 2011/65/EU (RoHS)
