Technology Delivers Unique Surface Effects
RPC Bramlage, Lohne, Germany, has introduced a new surface structuring process to create a range of tactile, patterned and textured finishes, such as leather, wood, stone and leaves on plastic containers.
The new technology not only can reproduce the look of these structures on a container or lid, but, using a two-component process, also can replicate their touch and feel. The pack itself requires no additional surface treatment or preparation. In collaboration with a partner, RPC Bramlage also has developed a process that combines in-mold labeling (IML) with this new surface-structuring, giving additional opportunity for high-impact decoration incorporating special surface finishes.
