Vinyl Sleeves, Holders, and Clear Plastic Passport Covers
Clear plastic passport covers come in a variety of sizes, colors, and thicknesses but generally, the sleeves are made in 6 mil to 10 mil clear plastic. The finish of the material is usually determined by the application. For example, when the clear plastic passport covers are used for presentation materials, document storage and passport covers the vinyl sleeves are clear or polished clear. The materials provide storage and protection for the document or article while offering a package that is waterproof and has very low visual distortion. This allows the materials or documents within the passport covers to be read or reviewed freely without direct contact which can be important to preserving the document or item. For more challenging environments or applications, say holding a menu, name badge, passport or checkbooks, the vinyl sleeve may be purchased with a thicker plastic so that the packaging may be more durable. When purchasing plastic or vinyl plastic products, it is important to consider the operating environment for the product.
When purchasing vinyl for clear plastic passport covers, it is best to consider the durability and the ability to clean the product often. You should also consider the flexibility of the material in the clear plastic passport covers and the temperature range that it will be exposed to. For example, most vinyl and plastics will be rigid, even fragile below freezing. So, those in extreme environments might find that there are some limitations with clear plastic passport covers.
