Flint Group, K Laser Introduce Cold Foil Technologies
In response to an increasing need for improved sustainable print solutions, Flint Group Narrow Web, Dallas, TX, and K Laser Technology (USA) Co. Ltd., Garden Grove, CA, have introduced a series of cold foil and cold foil adhesive technologies for UV LED curing systems.
The EkoCure cold foil adhesive was developed using specially selected photoinitiators that match the narrow and targeted wavelength area that is typical for UV LED lamp output. The main advantages with UV LED can be summarized as ecological and economical. UV LED lamps are ozone- and mercury-free for improved worker and environmental safety. On the production side, cold foil runs faster with less production problems and can cure through dark-colored cold foils. Economically, presses run longer and without lamp faults. Printers experience higher certainty and faster rates of cure with inks using the process.
