ECKART Effect Pigments

Brilliant solutions for gravure printing

In gravure printing the image to be printed is made up of small depressions in the surface of the printing plate. The cells are filled with ink and the excess is scraped off the surface with a doctor blade, then a rubber-covered roller presses the printing substrate onto the surface of the plate and into contact with the ink in the cells. The printing plates are usually made from copper and may be produced by digital engraving or laser etching. ECKART is since long the benchmark for performance and consistency in metallic pigments for gravure printing.
