Hot stamping foil/film is a kind of film made in Bopet film for developing a decorated sheet. You may find these sheets extensively on packages and prints.

Hot stamping foil utilizes PET as a based foil. It is coated with a release layer, aluminum layer, color layer, and adhesive layer.

The PET acts as the supporter for other coatings. The release layer permits different layers to release from the PET to the substrate surface by applying heat or pressure. The aluminum layer gives the opacity and reflective qualities preferred in metallic films.

The function of the adhesive layer is to bond the foil to the stamped substrate. This activity determines the printability of various substrates. The color layer allows you to use the film in grating structures and different hologram patterns.

You can conveniently use clear hot stamp foil to pack food, tobacco, luxury goods, and medicines in the packaging industry. It is also used for making labels for products such as wine and spirits. Hot foil stamping is widely used on greetings cards, banknotes, and commercial prints.

Q1, What Is the Hot Stamping Process?

Hot stamping is a lithography printing procedure that utilizes stamping dies or heated image molds to transfer pre-dried inks or metal foils onto a surface.

3: A release layer

Hot stamping is a precise, versatile and efficient process for printing on surfaces. It is often used to decorate or personalize products.

Q2, What Is Hot and Cold Stamping?

During the hot stamping process, foil is dispensed over the substrate against a counter plate. A chase mounted with a custom dies stamps down promptly with specific heat and pressure applied. It allows the defined area to stick to the paper while the surplus foil is peeled away. This activity leaves a luxurious and clean finish.

During the cold stamping procedure, the foil is dispensed from a roll mounted inline. Then it is laid over the substrate, which has a UV adhesive printed in the desired pattern. Foil is sealed to the sheet before exposure to a UV lamp by a pressure roller. It cures the adhesive and locks the design in a proper place.
