TechINFO: "Hot stamping sobre vidrio"


Precious metals
are often used for the decoration of high-end products. Despite continuous improvement, organic gold and silver inks have never been able to reach the look of the expensive precious metal preparations which must be baked at high temperatures.

The Ultraglass UVGL Primers, in combination with hot stamping foils, are now the perfect solution: Equal brilliance at much lower costs!
