The new white pouch film with metallized lining for the food sector is a new addition to the CGS ORIS packaging substrate portfolio
CGS ORIS introduced a new film to its media portfolio for solvent printers. The material is a pouch film with both a white (printable) and a metallized side to correspond in appearance and tactility to a typical aluminum composite film, such as is often used in the food industry for pouches, snack bars or similar products. With this film, more perfect mock-ups can be produced for this area.
"With the market launch of what is now the fourth heat-sealable film, we have responded to the great demand from our users. Lightweight sachets, stand-up pouches, etc. made of composite films are increasingly replacing the traditional types of packaging on the market. This is obviously also reflected in the increased demand for respective mock-ups. These pouch films are currently very much in trend and are in great demand. The films can all be printed quickly and easily and then converted into a perfect prototype. They are suitable for a variety of different packaging prototypes without having to resort to the original substrate," said Heiner Müller, Sales Director Packaging at CGS ORIS.
The white-laminated side of the substrate offers several advantages. Fewer passes are required and the ink coverage is significantly reduced because white no longer needs to be printed. For example, a snack bar, which often consists of white-laminated composite films, can be easily produced. The printable white layer has a high opacity and completely covers the inner film.
This also shortens the otherwise necessary drying times and makes the entire production process much faster and more efficient. The new material now makes it even easier to meet demands for mock-ups and their increasingly complex designs and to satisfy the increased requirements for packaging samples perfectly and cost-effectively.
The entire media range for solvent printers has been specially developed to meet the particularly high requirements for the production of proofs and prototypes in the packaging sector. It ranges from various transparent, aluminum and shrink films to cardboard packaging and the highly flexible CGS ORIS Media Transfer Film, which allows printing on original materials.
All media impress with high ink absorption and perfect drying behavior. State-of-the-art coating technology and comprehensive quality control ensure consistent results with maximum quality throughout the entire CGS ORIS packaging substrate portfolio. Conventional substrates from the LFP sector usually meet these requirements only to a very limited extent and are subject to a number of limitations, such as poor scratch resistance, colour casts or batch variations
CGS ORIS not only offers an extensive portfolio of proofing and prototyping media. The company also sells the unique complete system Flex Pack, which produces packaging proofs and samples of all kinds quickly and cost-effectively. All software and hardware components as well as color space expanding inks are perfectly coordinated in the system and enable unique mock-ups. Flex Pack is used worldwide by leading brand name companies, prepress companies and packaging printers.
