There are two processes for cold transfer, and they differ distinctly from one another regarding their application methods and the transfer technique employed. Cold transfer can be utilized in sheet-fed offset printing on the one hand, and narrow web flexographic, letterpress or offset printing on the other. These processes differ from one another not only in terms of printing machine systems used, but also in the materials, i.e. substrate, adhesive and foil grades.
KURZ cold transfer has substantially widened the spectrum of design possibilities. Cold foil transfer enables metallic gloss designs to be produced that would hardly be achievable to a comparable level of brilliance by any other means. For an inspiring overview get our 'Cold Foil Shades' information pack here. Meanwhile, you can learn more hard facts about our cold transfer processs:
Filigree negative impressions, even on large surfaces
Full-tone and half-tone images
Large & full-surface decoration without limits
Multi-color overprinting without difficulty
The thinnest decoration layers on the market, deinkable and compostable finishing qualities, completely recyclable cold foils with a PET return and reuse system, sustainable application processes – KURZ won’t do things by half-measures. As a driver of innovation, we improved the efficiency of the cold foiling process with unique decoration solutions. Besides our sustainable cold transfer decorations, our pioneering cold transfer DISTORUN® unit inspires with a resource-saving, emission free application process for sustainable packaging and label printing. Furthermore, thanks to its foil-saving unit our application module reduces waste production to a minimum. Get all the facts here.
