The ECOLEAF Technology

Understand the process

The embellishment is created by the printing of a trigger image in a varnish-like material (rather than the glue typically used with foils) which is applied onto the substrate by flexo, screen or inkjet printing. Before the trigger image passes the metallization unit, it is UV cured.

In the metallization unit, a very thin layer of metal pigments is applied and then transferred, very precisely, to the trigger image. After depositing the metal layer on the trigger image, there is no need for drying or curing, which not only makes ECOLEAF extremely environmentally friendly, but also comparatively cost-effective and fast when compared with traditional technologies.
