Cold Foil Stamping Technic

In 2006, HuCais introduces the first on-line cold foil stamping device to Asia and recruites many professional engineers, then we establishes R&D team of Cold Foil Stamping Technic. Because HuCais realizes hot foil stamping technic can not satisfying the customer’s high requirements about packaging.

In 2008, Shaoxing Hucais startes to research and develop cold foil stamping film independently. Meanwhile, this kind of film is stared to use in the products manufacture process.

In 2010, Shaoxing Hucais officially launches cold foil stamping film into the market, and becomes the first manufacture of offset printing cold foil stamping film in domestic country.

Principle of Cold Foil Stamping Technic

Offset printing equipment with on–line cold foil stamping device prints the pattern on surface of printing stock through adhesive glue at normal temperature conditions.

Impression cylinder transfers cold foil stamping film onto the sticky pattern to achieve a partial metallic color effect, then winding device movies away the rest cold foil stamping film.

Application of Cold Foil Stamping Technic

Cold foil stamping technic & packaging of daily use necessary

The cardboard box of cosmetic face mask usually uses gold/silver cardboard in the market, which we need to combine full-page gold/silver foil film on white cardboard, and then covers the parts that do not need to expose the metallic color by white ink, this wastes the gold/silver foil film and white ink.

However, if we use cold foil stamping technic, it prints the pattern on surface of printing stock through adhesive glue at normal temperature conditions, then impression cylinder transfers cold foil stamping film onto the sticky pattern to achieve a partial metallic color effect. So we don’t need to combine full-page gold/silver foil film onto white cardboard and we also don’t need to use white ink cover the parts that do not need to expose the metallic color, we can use white cardboard instead of gold/silver cardboard, this new technic helps customer save the cost & time of the gold/silver foil film and white ink.

Cold foil stamping technic & packaging of electronic products

For the paper printing & packaging of electronic products, such as packaging of mobile phone that logo and some small parts need to have bronzing metal high gloss. The traditional method uses white cardboard + hot stamping technic to achieve the effect, so we must make metal hot stamping plate, which needs a long plate-making period and consumes electricity resources.

If we use cold foil stamping technic, it prints the pattern on surface of printing stock through adhesive glue at normal temperature conditions, then impression cylinder transfers cold foil stamping film onto the sticky pattern to achieve a partial metallic color effect. Thus, we don’t need to make metal hot stamping plate, this helps customer to save the cost and time of making metal hot stamping plate. Meanwhile, cold foil stamping technic works at normal temperature conditions, it doesn’t need to be heated, this can help customer to reduce the cost of electricity energy.

Cold foil stamping technic & packaging of cigarette

The development trend of Chinese tobacco is "one low and one high". That is, the tar content is getting lower and lower, and the packaging grade is getting higher and higher! The low tar content is reflected by the light packaging color, the lighter color packaging is very difficult to achieve high-end.

Advantages of Cold Foil Stamping Technic


Quality Control Ability of Cold Foil Stamping Technic


Appendix 1

The standards of cold foil stamping technic insteads of hot foil stamping technic and gold/silver cardboard:

Select the 60° angle as the standard value, and the glossiness of cold foil stamping should reach 550 or more for achieving the replacement of the hot foil stamping effect. The vision distance when viewing under the daylight lamp is 250-300 mm, and the solid effect of cold foil stamping can’t exceed two pieces of 0.04mm pinhole which leaks white in Per square centimeter.

The Origin of Cold Foil Stamping Technic

There are more than 5,000 types of beers in Germany which always be called “large beer country”. Huge part of beer label/tag are printed with gold/silver foil cardboard. Gold/silver cardboard needs to be produced separately, this process takes long period time, and the printing of the full version is not in accordance with the requirements of European environmental protection. Cold foil stamping technic can realize the effect of partial gold /silver cardboard,so....
