Dresden, Germany, February 21, 2008 - KSW Microtec, one of the world's leading suppliers of RFID components, introduces contactless credit card inlays in sheet format that expand manufacturing options for card makers.

Thanks to KSW's special PET substrate, the new sheet inlays can be directly laminated into PVC layers for fast, reliable and cost-effective card production.
