Magstripes come in two main varieties: high-coercivity (HiCo) from 2750 Oe through 4000 Oe and low-coercivity (LoCo) at 300 Oe. We also provide MedCo at 650 Oe.
High-coercivity magnetic tape is primarily used for more secure applications and longevity such as cards for the financial industry and government ID's.
Low-coercivity magnetic tape require a lower amount of magnetic energy to record. Due to the cost efficiency LoCo tape, these are mainly used for the gift card and hotel key card industry
