Fairfield, New Jersey (October 30, 2007)-Stunning sustainable packaging and printing materials that are easy to design with, convert, and print on are available now from Unifoil Corporation. Technologically advanced nonlaminated recyclable UniLustre and Holographic UniLustre are brilliant multidimensional media that spark designers' imaginations and help printers, converters, and end users grow business. The proprietary innovative materials are ideal for cosmetic, personal care, beverage, multimedia and other point-of-sale items' packaging and security enhancement, as well as for printing applications, including brochures, annual reports, magazine covers, books, tags, and promotional items.
"End users can support sustainability initiatives and achieve a high level of aesthetic appeal on packaging and printed items," says Joe Funicelli, CEO and President, Unifoil Corporation. "Years of research and development have gone into the manufacture of UniLustre and Holographic UniLustre recyclable papers and boards which do not have to end up in a landfill," he states.
The unique manufacturing process for UniLustre products maintains the look of metallized papers and boards while meeting sustainable packaging standards. Most metallized foil laminations utilize foil thicknesses in the range of 0.0003 inches and are not recyclable. The metal thickness in UniLustre products is less than 1 percent of that, so the products are capable of being recycled.
Nonlaminated UniLustre products easily print with conventional high-speed printing methods. They require no hot stamping or laminating to achieve spectacular metallic or holographic effects. In addition, they offer excellent dead fold properties, are curl free, and do not flake.
Unifoil Corporation is a leading global specialty converter of paper, board, synthetic paper, plastic, film, foil, and custom holographic and metallized substrates. Its sustainable packaging materials include UniLustre, Holographic UniLustre, patented and patent pending UltraLustre and Holographic UltraLustre. The company has more than 40 years' experience in coating, laminating, and metallizing, creating unique materials for packaging, printing, promotion, and gaming applications.
