Kernow Launches Innovative High-Gloss Metallic Solutions for Wide Format

Tuesday, June 13, 2017

Press release from the issuing company

Pittsford, New York - KernowJet MetaliK Cut&Print® and MetaliK Inkjet®, the latest innovations from Kernow were launched at FESPA Hamburg, creating remarkable interest during the show. The team was swamped with inquiries from dealers, specialist printers, sign makers and brand designers for applications including high-end packaging, luxury boutiques and ‘next winter season campaigns’.

The Kernow R&D team focused on creating benefits and solutions, using ultra-dimensionally-stable polyester films.  Shrinking lettering on a hot, south facing widow and the risk of ugly exposed adhesive edges is now consigned to history! 

The MetaliK® range offers versatility of the products, widths up to 60in and different adhesives according to the use, i.e. wet-application, removable, or permanent installations.  When applied on glass, the double-sided metallization-effect looks amazing and is a major benefit. 

All versions can be printed and the colors chosen to match the requirements of perfume houses, luxury boutiques and to brighten Christmas campaigns. 

All that glitters is, indeed, KernowJet MetaliK® Gold… Silver… and the new, on-trend, Rose-Gold.

Bosy Colak, President – Kernow North America, commented – “We approached our R&D team with a challenge – create something special – which they have done and then some! The wide format market was in need of a new, bright, innovative product for packaging, signs, and graphics. MetaliK®goes above and beyond expectations when it comes to high-performance metallic solutions.”

Features and Benefits:

KernowJet MetaliK® Cut & Print is a 74µm metallic, polyester film with double-sided, matched metallization effect. The thickness and stability of the material, combined with a removable adhesive, makes it extremely customer friendly in use.

Easy to cut with a plotter - even very small complex shapes, perfect for lettering and logos and any metallic displays.  The double-sided metallic color is a major benefit, especially where outdoor temperatures, vandalism or accessibility are an issue… simply apply from the inside!

Printable with all standard eco-solvent, UV-curable and latex inks - HP-Latex certification is pending, it is equally well suitable for larger printed metallic surfaces e.g. POS displays.  It can easily be wet-applied with easy, clean removability from most surfaces.

The 76µm KernowJet MetaliK® Inkjet is one-sided with a high-tack, waterproof, permanent adhesive.  It is especially designed for laminating on boards before or after printing, depending on the printing equipment. The three films in this range also meets highest standards when it comes to packaging, doming, or POS applications.  It can be used for permanent lettering and logos, where the double-sided viewing is not needed.

All KernowJet MetaliK® films will be available in 54in and 60in widths. For more information, recommended printers, and to obtain samples please contact Kernow North America at info@kernowna.com
