Transmet is API’s film-free laminate option for paper and paperboard. It provides an all-over, print-receptive coating to the base material in a bright metallic finish.
A metallic layer, less than 0.1 micron thick, combined with a water based adhesive facilitates packaging waste disposal by recycling or composting.
The brightness and smoothness of Transmet’s metallic finish is highly dependent on the surface of the base material. Advice is available on appropriate board or paper selection.
Transmet is suitable for all commonly used printing technologies and responds well to embossing and foil stamping.
