Information Packaging Corporation created the ArmorShield® RFID card sleeve due to the increasing use of RFID chips in passports, enhanced driver licenses, credit/debit cards, and smart cards. Therefore, we’ve been using the top quality RFID protectors to secure your identification with our in-stock or custom made RFID card sleeves!

Furthermore, 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. As a result, they exploit the information to make unauthorized purchases online or by phone through  stolen card information.

Our RFID protective sleeves largely apply to the following markets; United States Federal, State government identification, Canadian government identification, bank cards, ID cards, and building access cards. Therefore, RFID blockers or sleeves are the optimal choice to protect the security of your card. In addition, many states and provinces located along the U.S. and Canadian border issue an Enhanced Driver’s License that requires RFID  protection sleeves. Without the protection of the ArmorShield® RFID shielding technology; skimming, unauthorized use or identity theft can happen while your card is still in your wallet. Some contactless card terminals can even read and charge your card from another checkout line.

ArmorShield® is FIPS 201 Approved

As a result, IPC manufactures ArmorShield® material that is FIPS 201 approved by the US Government that can be purchased on our In-Stock Shop. Therefore, classified as an Electromagnetically Opaque Shield. Read more about FIPS 201 approval on the U.S. Government site.  As a result, approval of the above products and services indicate successful testing against a rigorous, comprehensive set of functional requirements derived from government-wide specifications. In conclusion, testing included both positive and negative test cases, and threat vectors.

Additionally, the ArmorShield® RFID blocking sleeves activates card protection from electronic thieves. This includes; all contactless credit cards, passports, drivers licenses, ISO 14443A/B and EPC Gen1/Gen2 contactless smart cards; any contactless card that operates at 13.56 Mhz and above.
