Kurz to bring new label cold foil to Labelexpo
Kurz will launch the new KPW XU cold foil for narrow-web printing at Labelexpo in Brussels next month, with a variety of finished labels on show to demonstrate the versatility of the new foil.
The company says the new development aims to provide label printing companies with a cold foil that combines good processing characteristics and overprintability as well as “excellent finishing results”.
KPW XU is characterised as a versatile grade that offers a high covering power and edge definition, high-gloss finish, and good adhesion when applied, as well as good overprintability with UV inks.
“The newly developed cold foil makes processing easy for label printers,” explains Jens Niemann, head of Application Technology Graphics at Kurz. “Provided the machine and materials have been precisely tailored to one another, trouble-free application of the KPW XU can be expected.
“Optimal decoration results can be consistently achieved when using this cold foil, regardless of the design”, said Niemann.
