Transfer lamination film

Transfer lamination film

Transfer Lamination Film is typically used where there is a desire to maintain the physical properties of base material or when packaging waste considerations are particularly relevant.

As with standard holographic lamination film, films are available in a range of standard patterns or special patterns can be originated or developed to meet specific customer requirements. Transparent options are also available.

API holographic lamination films are free releasing and suitable for processing on most relevant machine types. They are print-compatible with offset, flexo, gravure, letterpress or screen technologies and can be embossed and foil blocked.

Shim line free options are available in certain patterns. Alternatively, API can provide specialist advice on accommodating shim lines within the print/conversion process to mask or completely eliminate their appearance on the final pack design.
