Holographic films are used for packaging, lamination, gift wrapping, and many other purposes. The films are highly aesthetic and offer security to the product. The films are used in different industries due to their flexibility and customization. As a manufacturer, you might also require these films for your product packaging. To make you aware of holographic films we have explained three interesting facts about them in this blog. 

1. Can be laminated with different types of materials 

Holographic films can be laminated with different types of materials. This combination leads to the development of unique packaging solutions. For example, the films can be laminated with sealable films to make flexible bags. In addition, the films can also be laminated with paper to make gift boxes or bags. Holographic films can also be coated with special adhesives to make hot stamping foils. Likewise, the films can be laminated with many other materials to develop out of the box packaging products.   

2. Can be used to create pressure-sensitive labels  

Holographic films can be used to make pressure-sensitive labels. Such labels are used in our everyday lives and just require the pressure of fingers or hands for applicationFor making these labels, the metalized surface of the holographic film is coated with pressure-sensitive adhesive along with release linerThis film is further cut into labels of specific shapes and sizes with the help of die.   

3. Can be chopped into glitter for holographic effect

Holographic films have a unique property to diffract light. The films can be chopped into glitter or powder, which can be further applied to packaging products and materials to give a unique visual effect. This helps to leverage brand value and make the product more appealing to your end consumers.

Product packaging with unique aesthetics and high security instantly grabs the attention of the end-consumer. No wonder, one of the prime objectives of packaging is to lure the consumers and make the product more saleable.

Taking a cue from this, packaging experts at Holostik came up with the idea of using UV embossed films for making highly attractive mono cartons and labels.

Packaging products affixed with UV embossed films have the potential to increase sales and leverage brand value.

UV embossed films-explained

UV embossed films are mainly polymer films coated with UV curable resin, which is later cured by high power UV light at the time of embossing. The UV embossing technology helps to produce high-quality holographic properties and effects as compared to hard and soft embossing processes.

UV embossing is a roll to roll manufacturing process consisting of 3 steps:

  1. The coating process: A flexible substrate film such as polyester is unwound from a reel and then a liquid UV curable resin is coated on the top side of the film. The film is dried to remove the solvent from the resin.
  2. Curing process: When the film is being embossed a high source UV light cures the resin.
  3. Rewound: In the final stage the completely cured embossed film is rewound on the reel.

One of the biggest advantages of shrink sleeves is that they offer 360-degree branding and offer comprehensive visibility to the product. This kind of exposure is not possible in other forms of packaging products like labels. The most difficult tasks for product packagers is to apply labelling on bottles with odd shapes. This is where shrink sleeves conform tightly to the shape of the container and adhere according to any kind of shapes. If the design is planned well, the shrink sleeves can add life to the product making it stand out from the rest.
