“More and more companies and consumers want packaging that is highly attractive and recyclable,” said Patrick Dedoyard, VP and GM of Amcor’s Specialty Cartons business, Americas.
The ‘Sunshine’ print effect generates a shiny look on carton packaging without metalized paperboard or the application of foil.
Since its commercialization in 2014, Amcor said its produced more than 8 billion packages with the Sunshine enhancement. The technology uses in-line application of a bright silver coating over an
ultraviolet or electron-beam primer. The process delivers a highly reflecting metallic effect that is an economical alternative to foil stamping or laminated metalized board.
Spot application and the ability to overprint on Sunshine enable a wide range of design possibilities for folding cartons.
Sunshine is also available at Amcor sites in the U.S., Switzerland, Poland, Turkey, Russia, Ukraine, Indonesia, and South Korea.
