Black Pearl

A very refined glass bead blanket for hologram films, hot foil or cold foil embossing

Each square centimetre of this blanket‘s surface embeds approximately 7 000 minuscule glass beads with anti-static properties. The microfine glass beaded surface prevents smearing and build-up of printing ink on the sheet and on the sheet guide elements of the press.

Only best raw materials are used in the production process in order to ensure outstanding resistance not only to heat, cold and abrasion, but also to printing chemicals (e.g. damping solutions or washes), petrol, acetone and oil. The very stable carcass provides high mechanical durability.
