ACTEGA Metal Print develops and produces ECOLEAF technology, the industry's most sustainable technology for creating metallic embellishments in graphic arts.

ECOLEAF technology is used to print metallic effects for labels, folding cartons, flexible packaging, commercial printing, and publishing. The technology dramatically reduces the waste associated with conventional cold foil and hot foil stamping technologies while providing a solution that is cheaper, faster and easy to use.

Our history

In 2017, ACTEGA, a division of the ALTANA group, manufacturer of coatings, sealants, printing inks and adhesives for the printing and packaging industries, acquired a patent for a new technology for decorative labels printed with metallic pigments through its subsidiary ACTEGA Metal Print. This is marketed under the brand name ECOLEAF.
