Zero-waste metallisation graphics at half the cost of foil


Landa has announced a new nanotechnology breakthrough for the graphics metallisation market. The company’s new nano-metallography technology offers zero-waste metallisation, reducing costs by more than half compared to foil. Landa’s quicker and simpler process will streamline the production of metallised print and improve customer profitability.

Landa nano-metallography is operable with the full spectrum of conventional printing technologies, including narrow-web flexo, offset and screen for the production of labels, sheetfed offset for folding carton and commercial printing, web-offset for publishing and wide-web flexo and gravure for flexible packaging. “Current metallisation processes are prohibitively expensive due to the high cost of foil and tremendous waste,” says Benny Landa, chairman of the Landa Group. “Our nano-metallography technology will enable metallisation at less than half the cost of foil, with zero-waste, and it’s microwave compatible. We expect this technology to be available to customers in 2017.”
