Cold foil

Cold foil transfer is a process to apply aluminium particles, from a backing film made of polyester to a paper or cardboard in a conventional offset printing press without the impact of heat. In the first printing unit an adhesive is applied to the substrate like a standard offset ink.

It can be applied partially displaying very fine details or in solids. In the following printing unit the metalized layer of the cold foil is being released from the backing film and transferred to the areas of the glue covered spots on the substrate. The result is a silver or gold layer on certain parts of the printed sheet.
In the following printing units these parts can be overprinted to generate different shades in a high metallic brilliance. After overprinting the metallic areas an aqueous coating or a UV coating is applied to the sheet to protect them from scratches.

The shiny mirror-like layer is providing a luxurious metallic look and can be combined with different color and coating effects which is especially interesting where packaging must attract the customersĀ“ attention, such as cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, cigarettes, food & beverage, consumer healthcare and confectionery products.
