HOW COLD FOIL WORKS ON A PRINTING PRESS
The adhesive layer is applied by the first printing tower. Via a standard printing plate the adhesive layer is printed on the paper exactly where the foil should go.
At the second printing tower, the printing sheet is pressed against the silverfoil. The foil attaches itself sharply and 100% durable to the adhesive layer. The non-contact sheet transport with aerodynamic air tracks guarantees scratch and blemish-free printing production. Due to the very accurate fit, the data for the film can be formatted as data for an additional PMS color.
The CMYK color printing + Pantone printing (6 colors possible in one run) starts from the third printing tower. The entire sheet can now be printed in full color: both the unprinted and the metallized part. A dispersion varnish is applied as a protective layer.
FOIL PRINTING IN A SINGLE RUN
Cold Foil makes it possible to provide the printing sheets with metallic effects in a single print run by using real foil as a spot – applied locally. It is the most environmentally friendly technique to produce luxury packaging.
