Nordenia: Emboss Film Without Heat

A patent-pending technique developed by Nordenia Technologies GmbH in Gronau, Germany, creates the effect of embossing by printing high-shrinking lacquer on film. As the lacquer shrinks, the film curls. Printing alternating lacquered and non-lacquered areas creates the cushiony effect of raised embossing. When film is rolled, the embossing flattens out, but when the film is unwound, it reappears. Nordenia Technologies is the R&D arm of film processor Nordenia International AG, which has started to show the technology to selected customers.
