Drip off system

For films and paper board

Drip Off represents an efficient and eye-catching method to achieve matt/gloss effects or matt/structure effects in a single process with just one coating unit.

The principle: in the last ink duct, a primer is partially used. Out of the coating unit, a high gloss coating is applied full area. Where primer and high gloss coating meet, a repellent effect is realized. Where the primer has been left out, you realize high gloss surfaces. In this way, you can produce fine printing designs without a spot coating plate.

Depending on the primer, application amount and the setting of your printing press (power of UV lamps), you can achieve medium to strong structures which provide a highly visual and haptical difference compared to the high gloss coating. The systems are characterized by a very good scratch and scuff resistance.

To create this you get a nice Drip Off effect with the Excure 90212 as Drip Off primer and the Excure 90007 as high gloss coating, both radical UV varnishes.

For cast & cure

Standard

Excure Cast & Cure varnishes are UV flexo varnishes which are used with special master films to create hologram and embossing effects.

The Excure laminating adhesives are UV-curing adhesives for varnishing machines, flexo units and/or letterpress units.

UV Cold foil adhesives

These UV adhesives are suitable for cold foiling. A UV curable adhesive is printed onto the substrate either via the letterpress or the flexo process. The handling of our products does not require special machinery Excure ept of a laminating station and a winding station. After the print of the adhesive, a foil is applied on top of the adhesive and passes through the UV lamp in contact with the wet adhesive. The UV light penetrates through the carrier foil and the metallic layer and cures the adhesive. In the last step, the carrier foil is peeled off from the substrate leaving the foiled image on the areas printed with the adhesive.
