Enhancement with printing techniques

Corona treatment for better print quality
PRIPLAK® sheets are treated on both sides, with an electric arc that oxidises the surface of the material.
This fine invisible layer improves the adhesion of inks suitable for printing on polypropylene.

 

UV Litho
A high rate of output and excellent four colour quality are the two main reasons for using this printing technique with PRIPLAK®. It allows images to be closely matched, thereby enhancing the end product. In addition to the UV litho process, dry offset and Waterless offset can also be used – but this must be specified at the time of ordering.(For more info. see the Printing Chapter.)

 

UV inkjet
Inkjet technology continues to develop rapidly and enables small to medium sized runs to be printed in high-definition. Super sized sheets can be printed with intense and saturated colours, giving images a new depth. This technological revolution opens up a wide range of applications: from POS to presentation folders, as well as exhibition posters and banners. We are especially pleased with the Priplak® Backlit range which has been specifically designed for the illuminated poster market.

 

Digital

 

Screen printing
The original method for printing Priplak®, and still popular today. Used with UV as well as one and two pack solvent based inks, screen can deliver a variety of special effects, such as glitter, relief and pearlised prints. It is adaptable to a wide range of sizes and thickness, and is particularly useful for large areas of solid colour.

 

Hot foil and embossing
A traditional printing technique, which is capable of providing a contemporary and wonderfully distinct impression when used with PRIPLAK®. Ideal for giving a prestigious look to the packaging of luxury products.
