Discussing the certification program, MetalFX Vice-President Americas Mark Geeves commented: "Although printing metallics with the MetalFX process is significantly easier than printing conventional metallics, the process is counterintuitive to many press operators.  These independent pressroom color consultants can assist printers in making the transition to the MetalFX process.  Many certified MetalFX trainers are also fully trained in the G7 color process-thus ensuring that they are familiar with the latest pressroom color techniques."
 
MetalFX, a recent Ciba Specialty Chemicals Corporation acquisition, is a universal process and spot metallic color system that allows millions of metallic colors to be printed, all by adding only the one base silver ink to the usual CMYK mix. Ciba Specialty brings more than 40 years of experience in color matching to the worldwide graphic arts, paints, plastics, fibers and ceramic industries.
