Water transfer printing is a system that allows for eye catching
designs printed on a wide variety of products and substrates. It is
especially useful to print complex shapes.
Water soluble film can be printed with almost any type of graphic
pattern, examples can be wood, marble, camouflage or company logos.
The film is floated in an immersion tank of water. The product to
be printed is dipped into the water, in either a manual or
automated system. Water follows any complex shape to produce a
smooth, consistent print. A clearcoat is then applied for
durability and fade resistance.
Water transfer printing can significantly increase the value, shelf
appeal and competitive position of many products. Several third
party proprietary printing systems are available and licensed
worldwide to both manufacturers and contract printers.Our grades
are ideally suited to successfully print in a gravure process.
Transfer printing is applicable for a wide variety of packaging
materials, including glass, plastic, metal, wood, porcelain and
other special surface.
