A new range of products manufactured using IMD/FIM technology (film back molding technique) and new effect pigment colors can be seen at the Proell KG booth in hall 3 – E51 at drupa 2008.
These include NORIPHAN HTR, a screen printing ink that is a well established IMD/FIM ink system for the film insert molding technique. NORIPHAN HTR is designed for back printing polycarbonate films,
such as Makrofol®and PC-blend films such as Bayfol. For 3-dimensional products, an additional forming step of the decorated films can be an option. NORIPHAN HTR is extremely flexible and resistant to the high temperature of the melted resin
during injection molding. In the final product the ink layers are sandwiched between PC film and resin. The decoration is protected to an optimal degree from damage. NORIPHAN HTR is used to decorate lenses, housings and keypads of mobile phones, panels
and bezels of car interiors (climate control panels, speedometer panels), housings and displays of medical devices, panels of household appliances as well as high-grade cosmetic packaging.
A wide range of metallic, pearlescent and chameleon color shades is available as for all Proell IMD ink systems.
NORIPHAN N2K is a solvent-based two-component screen printing ink for second surface IMD/FIM technology using PC films.
NORIPHAN N2K is optimized for the needs of processing thin films (e.g. < 100 μm). Printed films decorated with NORIPHAN N2K show no curling effect. The screen printing ink guarantees excellent adhesion to PC, PC/ABS and silicon rubber resin in the injection molding process.
AquaPress ME is a water-based, screen printable heat reactive adhesive. The system shows good adhesion to many plastics, high flexibility and good temperature resistance. The hot melt adhesive is suitable to support the lamination for the IMD/FIM two film technique,
as well as the manufacturing of high quality, multi layer plastic cards.
Mirror Ink M1 is a special screen printing ink for printing chrome effects. The ink system is used for second surface decoration of transparent plastics and films (PC, PMMA, PVC rigid and pre-treated PET films). While drying, the metal pigments are aligned parallel to the substrate’s reverse site. Viewed through the transparent material from the first surface, the pigments create a mirror like
Rainbow Ink is a solvent-based metallic screen printing ink for creating iridescent rainbow-like color effects on clear transparent PC, PMMA, Rigid PVC and pre-treated PET films, when printed
on the reverse side of the materials (back surface print).
Even by first surface decoration, interesting effects can be achieved.
NORIPHAN HTR 3D INK is a magnetizable effect screen printing ink. Various color shades can be achieved by mixing with transparent colors. NORIPHAN HTR 3D INK is suitable for printing
on PC and PMMA films. The effect screen printing ink is also available as water-based ink system Aqua-Jet FGLM 3D
INK and in various standard screen printing inks such as Thermo-Jet.
NoriCure UV-L 3 is a new UV-curing screen printing lacquer with excellent scratch and abrasion resistance. The high glossy UV-lacquer is designed for printing on PC films, coated PET films, various rigid PVC films and for overprinting of printed products.
NoriCure® UV-L 3 shows good adhesion to UV, solvent and water-based screen printing inks as well as most offset inks. The lacquer is used to overprint and protect displays, lenses and
NoriCure®AP is an UV curing ink system for printing on rigid PVC and self-adhesive PVC films, as well as on diverse paper and cardboard qualities. The press ready UV curing screen printing
ink NoriCure AP is easy to process with unlimited screen opening, which is typical for UV inks. When completely cured, NoriCure AP shows good resistance to chemical and mechanical
influences. The ink system is suitable for processing on high performance screen printing
Aqua-Jet FGL M is a well established water-based screen printing ink for printing on plastics such as various PVC types and PC. Paper and cardboard as well as wood are also printable substrates. Due to its water-based formulation, Aqua-Jet FGL M is a good alternative to
solvent inks. The ink system is easy to process, suitable for many substrates, and therefore a good substitute for conventional solvent-based inks.
