Databac offers a range of cards that have been designed and developed in-house. With so many cards in the market-place, these card brands have been developed to provide unique and superior performance against other generic cards.

Block IT™ card

Block IT™ – protect your RFID cards against digital theft and accidental transactions

Now there is a simple but secure solution to protect the data stored on your payment cards, ID cards and ePassport from robbery and fraud. Billions of contactless cards are used worldwide every day for payment, access control and other applications. RFID has made life easier, but can leave your data more vulnerable to theft, cloning and accidental transactions.
Contactless RFID chips can be read remotely (from a distance of up to five feet) without authorisation and without any indication that they are being read. The Block IT™ Card (Contactless Card Protector) from Databac effectively blocks RFID signals sent to readers or smartphones by fraudsters who try to illegally steal personal information stored on your credentials.

How it works

Simply place the Block IT™ Card (Contactless Card Protector) in your wallet alongside your contactless card and you are protected against digital robbery and accidental payment (works if your contactless card protector is in contact with your contactless card).

Please note: Information is based on in house tests and may vary from site to site. Databac Group can provide samples for testing. Acceptance of the product after test will result of acceptance of its functionality.

Data ReWrite™

DataReWrite™ – the eco-friendly card that can erased and re-printed up to 500 times

Why use 500 cards when you can use one card up to 500 times*? Data ReWrite™ is Databac’s rewritable card, containing a thermal recording material which allows text and images to be printed and erased up to 500 times.

Visitor ID

Data ReWrite cards bring massive cost-savings to visitor ID and other applications with a fast, high turnover of cards. They allow companies to avoid pouches with paper inserts in favour of professional-looking plastic cards, personalised for each visitor with name and even photo.

High performance

TOUGH card and TOUGH card Bio offer a high flex-life, scuff resistance and reduced dye-migration. When incorporating contactless technology, the cards withstand flexing and IC mechanical stress much better than printed PVC chip cards.

Cards that communicate

Data ReWrite cards can also function as a promotional tool in loyalty schemes. They allow companies to communicate messages to customers on the card itself, for example loyalty points or special offers. Other potential applications include hotel key cards, library, student cards, membership, ski-passes, patient ID and contractor ID, where the data on the card needs to be updated or changed.

Custom-made to your requirements

Data ReWrite cards can be tailor-made to client specifications. The entire card can have a rewritable surface or just feature a rewritable panel. We can pre-print the cards with corporate graphics and security backgrounds and incorporate a range of technologies such as EM4200, Mifare, Legic, HID prox and iclass, and even UHF.

Metal Core™

Metal Core™ – the ideal card for use with food production

Metal Core refers to a variety of card types which Databac can manufacture with a metal foil core. Metal Core cards are aimed for use at food manufacturing plants and other areas where the card needs to be detected by a metal detector.


Metal Core cards are ideal for access or time recording cards worn by staff who work in food preparation areas or factories. The metal detection process at factories will pick up even a small piece of the foil if lost in the system. The cards are also useful at high-security zones where the wearer’s ID must be detected on leaving the area.

We are happy to provide samples for testing and consider specific requirements based on the detection equipment employed.

Metal Core cards

Databac’s PolyFlex pouches and cards, PVC cards, DuraCard and TOUGH card products can incorporate our metal foil core.
Metal Core cards can incorporate a range of reading technologies so that they can be used with the majority of time and attendance, access control, and shop floor data collection systems available today. These include barcode, IR barcode, magnetic stripe and contact chip. RFID cards are in development.
