Press release from the issuing company

Curtis becomes first folding carton manufacturer in North America with next generation digital coating technology
Sandy Hook, CT – Curtis Packaging Corporation is proud to announce the launch of its Curtis Coatography series of products. This line represents a giant leap in coating precision and versatility, allowing Curtis to apply a proprietary UV polymer with pinpoint accuracy in varying thicknesses to a wide variety of substrates. This advancement was made possible by Curtis' acquisition of a Scodix S Series digital coating press, the first of its kind at a North American folding carton converter.
"We are extremely excited to launch Curtis Coatogoraphy," said Don Droppo, Jr. President and CEO. "I am awed by the truly three dimensional enhancements we can achieve using Scodix technology. There is nothing more important to Curtis than continuing to innovate and the acquisition of this revolutionary new press allows us to do just that."
The first product in the series, Coatography Gloss, allows Curtis to achieve an undulating landscape of coating. It measures 99 Gloss Units, the highest gloss available for printed materials, and can be applied up to 250 microns in polymer height, 100 times higher than traditional UV coatings. Variable density capabilities ranging from one to 100 percent, allow for both high gloss and more "matte" finishes in a single pass. It also offers enhancement for underlying colors through the "lens effect". Digital technology allows for full customization on both short and long runs. Future product offerings in this series will include glitter, spot flocking, and lenticular effects.
