Kurz develops new cold foil

27 August 2019

German thin film technology specialist Kurz has unveiled the new KPW XU cold foil for narrow web printing.

The new development aims to provide converters with a cold foil that combines good processing characteristics and overprintability as well as excellent finishing results. KPW XU is characterized as a versatile grade that offers a high covering power and edge definition, high-gloss finish, and good adhesion when applied.

‘The newly developed cold foil makes processing easy for label printers. 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 Jens Niemann, head of Application Technology Graphics at Kurz.

The company will be demonstrating the versatility of the new KPW XU cold foil at the upcoming Labelexpo Europe in Brussels this September.
