1.    Product Information

This product provides effective shielding at 13.56 MHz and 860-980Mhz by limiting the flow of RF energy between a reader and the “smart” card or other RFID device.  The product contains paper material which is fused with a special multi-ply laminate with a conductive layer.  The conductive layer creates a barrier which impedes communication between the reader and the card.  It is light weight, water resistant and durable.  The product is designed to fit one card or passport per sleeve only.  For additional information, please visit

Although designed for RFID based cards, you can use the product for non-RFID cards as well.

Possible Ideas: Credit Cards, Passports, Library Cards, Drivers Licenses, Student ID’s, Smart Cards, Work ID’s (after hours storage), more…  (Most card and service providers are now starting to use RFID cards that broadcast with a 13.56MHz frequency.  If you are not sure, contact your card issuer to determine what signals it is programmed with.)

2.    Product Usage

  1. Insert card / passport object gently into sleeve opening so object is completely concealed into the sleeve.
  2. 2.     Remove by pulling card / passport object gently from sleeve opening. (remember to re-insert object when not in use)
