Folacoat Basic

Transparent, strippable coating plate for use with aqueous or UV varnish

Folex offers the most innovative range of coating forms with high dimensional stability: Compressible or transparent, with aluminium or polyester carrier, self-adhesive, for UV or aqueous coating, with polymer for high gloss levels. The product range is continuously tested and refined in intense cooperation with press manufacturers. For many years, BIRKAN has been and is being distributor of Folex press room products.

Folacoat coating plates make it easy for you to create an individualised form tailored to your job. Of decisive importance for trouble-free production are the time-proven Folacoat surface polymers, which were developed specifically for transferring coatings, not inks.

The translucent Folacoat Basic was developed for the use with water-based and UV coatings. The uniform thickness profile of coating plate achieves a good coating transfer even at highest printing speeds. A single-layer polyester film is used as carrier material, which provides the necessary dimensional stability.

The red-translucent polymer layer can be cut easily by hand or with a CAD-cutting system. The applied cuts are clearly visible and the unwanted polymer areas can be lifted easily. The Folacoat Basic is currently used for medium to large production runs. Additionally it will be even used in H-UV applications.
