The alternative to foil embossing and metallization

The most successful products are those in which the customer can see themselves – and that doesn’t just apply to the contents. A mirror effect is always eye-catching and helps to draw customers in. ULTRASTAR does this especially well – you can use it to create all kinds of effects, from a crystal-clear shine on paper and cardboard right up to a true mirror effect on foil packaging.

True mirror effects – for a dream effect come true

ULTRASTAR is used in UV-hardening offset, flexographic, coating-unit, and screen-printing applications, and is particularly suitable for food packaging. It is the ideal choice for solvent-based gravure, flexographic, and screen-printing applications.

The bright Silver Premium effect makes this printing ink truly stand out. Based on METALURE® PVD pigments, it is able to create true mirror effects on foil. With its distinctive metallic effect and high efficiency, ULTRASTAR produces just as good results as time-consuming, conventional refining processes. ULTRASTAR UV FP-8230, for example, provides a genuine alternative to foil embossing and metallization – we have developed this product specially for manufacturing labels. Like all ULTRASTAR UV printing inks, it can be used for inline printing.

ULTRASTAR is also available as a Nestlé-listed FPG (food packaging grade) printing ink for food packaging. ULTRASTAR UV FPG is produced without white spirit or mineral oil and its raw materials have been chosen, analyzed, and produced carefully in line with GMP (good manufacturing practice).
