ArmorShield® RFID Blocking Sleeves

Protection For Your Most Sensitive Data


With the ever increasing use of RFID chips in passports, enhanced driver licenses, credit/debit cards and smart cards Information Packaging has risen to the challenge and created ArmorShield® RFID Blocking Sleeves in an effort to secure your electronic data from would be thieves. ArmorShield® is a proprietary material that we developed to provide protection against unauthorized access or skimming of RFID cards. Thieves use cheap technology to ‘skim’ card information to obtain the cardholder name, card number and expiration date. With these hand held skimmers, they are able to export the information to make duplicate cards, unauthorized purchases online or by phone using your stolen card information.




Our RFID blocking sleeves are currently used in the following markets:

  • United States Federal and State government identification
  • Canadian government identification
  • Bank cards
  • ID cards
  • Building access cards

RFID Blocking Sleeves manufactured with ArmorShield® are the optimal choice to protect the security of your card. Many states and provinces located along the U.S. and Canadian border issue an Enhanced Driver’s License. Without the protection of ArmorShield® RFID shielding technology, unauthorized use of the cardholders’  identity can happen while the card is still in their wallet. Some contactless card terminals can even read and charge your card from another checkout line.
