Complete technology transfer including equipment, process & chemistry is available for polymer master, recombination & seamless cylinder.

Polymer Master

  Nano/ Micro Structure from 50 nm to 8 microns 
  Deep groove, engrave & diffraction structure 
  Long run 50000 to 100000 Linear metre
  Replication cost of the shim is less than £100 
  Can be added to existing soft embossing, hard embossing, gravure & flexo
  Customised sizes
  Inline UV casting on paper or film with or without registration 
  Replaces expensive cast & cure film/process  
  Standard speed between 100-150 m/min depending on structures 
  Higher speeds possible and can be customised

Advantage of our process as compared to thermal embossing 

Easy to replicate deep

structures like fresnel lens,

engraved & etched.

Direct embossing on

paper as well as thick

plastic films

Higher brightness 

Higher consistency 

No web break

Process is faster

Economical

Environmentally friendly
