KDX has introduced dedicated UK stock of its speciality glitter and metallic thermal laminating films for offset UV printing, making them ideal for luxury print and packaging, gift tags and cards, boxes, POS and book covers. 


Premium Brushed (Gold/Silver/Copper) gives a textured, stainless steel look and finish with a distinctive eye catching effect. Premium Metalised (Gold/Silver) gives a metallic lustre with a reflective and mirror like surface, and Premium Glitter (Silver/Gold) thermal films have a uniformed glitter surface effect similar to metal sand blasting.


The films are designed to be laminated directly to the printed board and then printed using offset UV and converted separately. The surface is also highly suitable for UV Varnish, embossing and foil blocking for maximum impact. The Premium Glitter film will not drop particles, and gives a non-directional, uniform glitter effect which allows smooth running and eliminates production issues associated with ‘shedding’ of traditional glitter.


The company has European warehousing and logistics set up for next day delivery within the UK. 


Michel Diruy, general manager KDX Europe Bv says: “These laminating films can really add distinction to print, luxury packaging, boxes, book covers, stationery, bags and POS. And by expanding the range of finishes customers are telling us they are getting vital differentiation from their competitors who may only offer more traditional gloss and matt finishes. Now we stock these products for the UK we are able to offer next day delivery and support customers with trial rolls; all backed up by our UK expertise and sales support team.”


Laminating films are available in bespoke sizes with sample rolls available in 440mm and 630mm widths x 200m, ideal for shorter runs, one off orders or trial product testing and customer samples.
