Foaming Printing

Expanded microcapsule foamed ink provides an irregular concave and convex pattern on the printed surface, different texture from matte printing. “Matte” or “matte type” is a low gloss/sheen finish. This technology is widely applicable to TULC, aTULC, DWI and welded cans.

Foaming Printing
  • 1. Thermally expandable microcapsules (thermoplastics) containing volatile solvent are mixed in with ordinary ink.
  • 2. The solvent in the microcapsules vaporize in the baking oven greatly expanding the microcapsules to generate a foamed texture.
    Almost all the solvent diffuses through the microcapsule membrane.
