KDX, a world leader in the manufacture of Thermal Laminating Films has introduced to the UK, its speciality frosted and textile finishes after the successful launch of metallics earlier in 2018.
Textile Thermal Films (Red, Yellow or Blue) create a fabric like finish, which can create a luxurious feeling which is ideal for all kinds of books, brochures, packaging and other printed materials.
Frosted (Clear, Red and Black) thermal films have a matt sand textured surface and a good uniformity of colour to give print a tactile and elegant effect while preserving the image colour underneath.
Both these unique films are designed to be laminated directly onto the printed board and then printed using offset UV and converted separately. The surfaces are also highly suitable for UV Varnish, embossing and foil blocking for maximum impact. They give a non-directional, uniform effect which allows smooth running. These laminating films are available in bespoke sizes and colours, with sample rolls available in 440mm and 630mm widths x 200m, ideal for shorter runs, one off orders or trial product testing and customer samples.
Michel Diruy, general manager KDX Europe Bv commented: “These laminating films complement our popular metallic ranges and are a great way to really add distinction to print, luxury packaging, boxes, book covers, stationery, bags and POS. KDX is delighted to be expanding the range of finishes available as customers are telling us they are getting vital differentiation from their competitors who may only offer more traditional gloss and matt finishes. We are able to offer next day delivery and support customers with trial rolls; all backed up by our expertise and sales support team.”
KDX has direct routes to market in the UK and Europe and are supplying printers, finishers and converters directly in these areas. They have European warehousing and logistics set up for next day delivery.
