  • 3D effects in plastics

    Striking 3D effects - not only for printing but also for plastic packaging!
    Simple plastic parts suddenly have relieved impressions, becoming vivid and multi-dimensional. The resulting plastic parts have rich, evident depth, 3D contours, and a shape that boosts perception in an instant.

  • RGB Printing Technology with Spectraval™ pearl effect pigments

    Any color, even white, is plotted on electronic displays by red, green and blue pinpoints of light. Our Spectraval™ pigments now transfer the additive color mixing technology into printing – and pave the way to unseen brilliance.

    We managed to produce some real-life packaging examples, that we are proud to present at the Show. They indeed demonstrate the massive enhancement of the whole packaging, even RGB is applied solely on small areas.
    For the converters we designed a useful tool, that indepth explains the functionality of Spectraval pigments. Our RGB-Color Compendium will be of great help in the pre-press, and supports gravure printers to become familiar with this exciting technique.

    Process for RGB printing developed by Merck KGaA Darmstadt (Germany) in cooperation with Lorenz Boegli of Atelier für Siebdruck, Lorenz Boegli, Müntschemier (CH).
