Lecta, a provider of paper-based solutions, has introduced new metalized paper for high-end graphic applications and premium packaging.
Featuring glossy metallic appearance, the new metalized paper has optimum brightness and is made of 100% recyclable mono-material.
The new Metalvac G paper, which extends the company’s portfolio of Metalvac products, is a range of high substance papers (from 105 g/m2 to 170g/m2).
Additionally, the new Metalvac G range allows creation of exclusive packaging, especially for premium look envelopes and gift bags with Metalvac G 105g/m2, and for board lamination for rigid boxes and prestige packaging with Metalvac G 115 – 170 g/m2, Lacta said.
The firm noted that the new paper guarantees the best results in offset, UV offset, flexography and silkscreen printing. It is also suitable for hot-melt and water-based glues.
Lacta said in a statement: “The new Metalvac G paper is featured in the latest sample collection Graphic Applications & Packaging under the slogan “LET IT SHINE”.
“Along with two other catalogues from the collection, Wet-glue Labels and Pressure-sensitive Labels, it rounds out Lecta’s extensive and versatile Metalvac metallized paper portfolio.”
In addition to Metalvac G, the firm’s Graphic Applications & Packaging segment comprises low substance metalized papers for gift-wrap paper (Metalvac R), food wrappers (Metalvac F), inner-liners for cigarette packets (Metalvac T).
