Hot stamping foil has greater versatility

A new general purpose matt pigment hot stamping foil from API offers both fine detail and broad area coverage across a wider range of applications than any other pigment foil previously available from the company.

A new general purpose matt pigment hot stamping foil from API offers both fine detail and broad area coverage across a wider range of applications than any other pigment foil previously available from the company.

The PG grade is said to combine the best qualities of API’s legacy pigment foils UA and 432, delivering a number of improved product features.

A better opacity means customers will achieve a sharper colour and better overall finish, and a wider operating temperature window increases productivity by improving process times. In addition, by providing a well defined colour range in just a single grade, it is simpler for customers to choose their preferred product as PG will cover the vast majority of applications.

The new foil has good resistance to water, plasticiser migration and to wines and spirits. It is non-toxic and meets stringent compliance and legislation across numerous industry standards worldwide.
