Types of Stamping Foils
Chromium Based Hot Stamping Foils
Armed with more than two decades of technical experience and cutting edge technology, Veritech has developed an advanced manufacturing process for the Chromium Based Hologram (CBH). This melding of expertise in holographic techniques and high-security printing capability has resulted in a CBH that incorporates all mandatory elements and hence finds acceptance nationwide - a critical factor for the vehicle-based application. Veritech's Chromium-based holographic hot stamping foils are resilient and tamper-resistant owing to their unique manufacturing process, and are widely used in high-security registration plates (HSRP) owing to their durability and longevity in outdoor conditions.
High Refractive Index (HRI) Foils
HRI Stamping Foil is a transparent metallized material which can be used in high-security transparent holograms. HRI foils are metallized with Zinc Sulphide instead of aluminium which imparts a transparent appearance to it. These foils are diffusion free and have a higher consistency of holographic effects as compared to other holograms, which make them very useful in applications such as pharmaceutical packaging, bank documents, ID cards, and academic certificates.
Holographic Cold Foils
This is an online transfer process wherein a UV-curable adhesive is printed onto the substrate as per the desired shape and design, after which the foil is applied on to the substrate, and then stripped away, leaving only the area where the adhesive was applied. Since this process does not need a die to be made, there is a considerable reduction in the production time. Cold foiling can also have various special effects such as embossing, gradient, gloss/matte finish etc.
De-metallization is widely used on currency notes, security documents and many other confidential documents. These foils can also be seen on the Euro, owing to its high level of security against duplication. De-metallization means that the metal part is removed from specific areas of the hologram to form various security patterns or design enhancements. It is perceived as one of the highest levels of security in modern hologram technology.
Hot Stamping Foils
Hot stamping is a process which uses a combination of heat and pressure for the application of holographic transfer foils onto various products, documents or packaging material. These are used in a wide variety of applications that require anti-counterfeiting or anti-tampering functionality. Hot stamping foils are widely used in industries such as Banking, Pharma, F&B, Tobacco, Wine & Liquor etc. They are also used extensively for high security applications such as cheques, stamp papers, banknotes and other secure documents.
