Laminate with Many Different Processes

The CL 850 duplex laminator has a coating unit with a multi-trolley system design that enables the use of different process technologies to perform multiple applications, including solvent- and water-based dry lamination, solventless lamination, in-register cold seal coating on preprinted substrates, and in-register printing of one additional color. Dryer features combined technology nozzles, impingement and flotation type. Sensitive web handling control reportedly produces superior quality duplex structures with the widest range of flexible material combinations.

Coating Resists Heat

A water-based coating designated 1010 exhibits the highest degree of heat resistance when exposed to elevated temperatures and sealing pressures, company says. Heat resistance is accomplished without use of zinc compounds, other metal modifiers, or catalysts. Gloss overcoat also is said to be a superior film former, with resistance to grease and oil, and is suited for flexible packaging, folding box, and general converting applications.

UV Coating and Varnish Add Effects

The UV Gloss/Dull System uses full-solid UV coating and effect varnish to enable printers to offer what are said to be dramatically enhanced product offerings without incurring much extra cost. System works with both anilox and roller coater equipment. Process produces a spot dull contrast without having to prepare special coating plates. Sheets are completely dry when they come off the press.
