Technology delivers unique surface effects
RPC Bramlage has introduced a new surface structuring process to create a wide range of tactile, patterned and textured finishes, such as leather, wood, stone and leaves, on plastic containers.
The variety of eye-catching effects that can be achieved guarantees unique branding and valuable on-shelf differentiation in competitive retail markets.
The new technology can not only reproduce the look of these structures on a container or lid, but using a two-component process can also replicate their touch and feel. The pack itself requires no additional surface treatment or preparation.
In addition, in collaboration with a partner, RPC Bramlage has developed a process that combines In-Mould Labelling (IML) with this new surface-structuring, giving additional opportunities for high-impact decoration incorporating special surface finishes.
