Storage recommendations for consumables

The quality of the consumables is essential for a good quality printing. For an optimized lifespan and use, they have to be handled and stored under specific conditions. The following recommendations are the optimal storage conditions for best print quality. These are based on our current know-how and observations but are not a warranty on the products.

General storage recommendations

For all the Evolis supplies (color, monochrome or security ribbons, cards and cleaning kits) it is recommended to store them in dark place avoiding dust, direct sunlight, high humidity and high temperatures. These products must not be placed near solvents or other chemicals.

Recycling Information

Recycling facilities and waste treatment regulations vary depending on the location and profile of each user (private individuals, associations, businesses, local authorities, public sector, etc.). To find out about your various recycling options and to set up a suitable collection procedure, please contact your local waste treatment companies.

This document shows you the main components for each consumable and how to dismantle them. In order to optimize how each consumable is recycled, each element must be separately sorted.


Composition of Evolis High Trust® Cards

PVC is recyclable, whatever the color and format of the card. The more technical the card (encoding, rewritable zones, etc.), the more complex recycling becomes. It may even be prevented entirely.

Card Customization and Recycling

Color or monochrome card printing does not affect recycling. Blank and printed cards can be collected together.

During lamination, a layer of PET is added to the card. This makes it harder to recycle the card, or may even prevent recycling.

Cleaning Kits

Evolis cleaning kits are not recyclable. Only the cardboard packaging should be sorted with cardboard waste.

Color, Monochrome and Security Ribbons

Ribbons themselves are not recyclable because of their chemical properties. But some components of the consumable can still be recycled.
