OSC Series Holographic Offset Cold Foil
Holographic foils are specialty foils that create a holographic effect, typically with a shifting and multi-colored appearance. They are often used in printing and packaging to add visual interest and a sense of luxury to products.
Cold foil printing is a process where a UV-curable adhesive is applied to a substrate, and then the foil is pressed onto the adhesive. The process doesn't involve heat, making it suitable for various materials. It's commonly used for packaging, labels, and other printed materials.
Offset printing is a commonly used printing technique where the inked image is transferred (or "offset") from a plate to a rubber blanket, and then to the printing surface. It's a versatile and high-quality printing method often used for large-scale print runs. Combining holographic effects with cold foil in an offset printing process can create visually striking and premium-looking prints.
Metallic Gloss and Holographic Effect
The high metallic gloss contributes to a visually striking and reflective surface. The holographic effect enhances the visual appeal, creating dynamic and shifting patterns as the foil interacts with light.
Good Release Property and High-Speed Stamping
The good release property ensures that the foil adheres effectively to the substrate during the stamping process. Suitable for high-speed stamping, making it efficient for large-scale production.
Excellent Transfer Performance
Holographic cold foil exhibits excellent transfer performance during the stamping process, ensuring that the holographic patterns are accurately and uniformly applied to the substrate.
Adhesion to Various Substrates
The foil demonstrates good adhesion to a range of substrates, including coated paper, PE (Polyethylene), PP (Polypropylene), PET (Polyethylene Terephthalate), and more. The versatility of foils makes it suitable for diverse applications across different industries.
Excellent Overprintability and Strong Ink Adhesion
Overprintability refers to the ability to print additional layers over the foil. The excellent overprintability of holographic cold foil allows for further customization and enhancement. Strong ink adhesion ensures that printed designs on top of the foil remain vibrant and durable.
Available Patterns and Customization
Customization options allow for the creation of unique and branded holographic effects tailored to specific requirements. With a selection of more than 40 patterns, including registered lens and 3D embossing patterns, the holographic cold foil provides a wide range of design options.
The foil is available in silver, gold, and transparent bases, providing flexibility in design and enabling compatibility with various color schemes and substrates.
