San Jose, CA (March 6, 2003) The new, revolutionary FlexISO XT (Extra Tough) composite card is Indala’s most durable and long lasting technology card. FlexISO XT integrates Indala’s breakthrough FlexSecur™ proximity technology within a card body designed to withstand extreme applications. Indala’s unique composite formulation enhances the structural integrity of the card, providing additional protection to the core electronics.

"This card has been designed to endure high use applications previously reserved for thick, non-imageable cards."FlexISO XT works with all Indala FlexPass™ readers, allowing any number of cards to be easily re-issued as necessary. The card comes with a lifetime warranty, and can be factory programmed and shipped in five business days. FlexISO XT is also eligible for Indala’s FlexPass™ Express program, which guarantees shipment in as little as 48 hours from order acknowledgment.
