In response to the wide format market showing a growing interest in packaging, Kernow Coatings has developed KernowPrint MetaliK for fast production of shinny packaging in Gold, Silver and Rose Gold, now available in B2 sheets, the company stated.
KernowPrint MetaliK is a 345μ cardboard with a glossy front face, while the rear side has a white finish. The MetaliK side of the material - available in Silver, Gold or Rose Gold - offers unlimited print options and pattern effects especially with white inks, the company claimed. The white side of the boards remains printable whenever needed. KernowPrint MetaliK can easily be cut on flatbed cutting tables and when folded, it will smoothly fold without damaging the metallisation or the print on the edges.
Mark Geeves, director of sales & marketing at Color Logic said, “The Silver MetaliK board from Kernow Coatings has been certified by Color Logic for UV inkjet applications. Color Logic did a visual and spectral measurement of KernowPrint MetaliK Silver which met all of our requirements for certification. The Silver MetaliK board has excellent applications for the packaging, POP, and signage markets.”
In addition, Kernow Coatings certifies five new KernowPrint Vivid Tear Resistant Synthetics for HP Indigo. The new range of vibrant coloured materials includes red, yellow, orange, blue, and green materials designed for use on the HP Indigo press. KernowPrint Vivids for HP Indigo are the first of their kind material designed to help customers expand their application range through the creative use of new materials.
