Sustainable Metallization for the Graphic Arts.
EcoLeaf is a new category of metallization for the Graphic Arts. It is used to embellish labels, folding cartons, flexible packaging and more. By only using the precise amount of metal required, EcoLeaf eliminates the need for Hot- and Coldfoil.
You can generate a wide range of metallic embellishments:
- Tactile metallic effects without embossing (rotary or flatbed screen)
- Very fine metallization at the highest resolution (flexo)
- Seamless and variable metallization (inkjet)
- Application of the precise amount of metal needed
- Eradicate the need for Hot- and Coldfoil
- Significant amount of material and cost savings
- Reduced production time
- Very fine details and high resolution metallization
- Tactile effect with high gloss, also on filmic substrates
- Over and under print metallization for a rainbow of metallic effects
- Conventional and digital integration options for a variety of printing presses
