Polyfuze Graphics™ Now Available as CMYK 4-Color Process
Clarkdale, AZ: As manufacturers of the only polymer based graphic which literally fuses with polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP), Polyfuze Graphics™ Corporation has new innovations within their technology. When asked to comment, Vice President Jason Brownell said, “Our R&D team has done it again. For years customers have been requesting a permanent custom graphic for PE/PP using the CMYK 4 color process, in order to achieve photographic type images. The Polyfuze graphic is comprised of pigmented plastic and is opaque, which makes it great for decorating, but a challenge for CMYK processing which uses translucent elements. Utilizing white Polyfuze materials as a backing, we were able to make the translucent colors pop.”
Initial orders for the Polyfuze graphic in CYMK are currently in production and the company expects more CMYK production coming soon in the months ahead, as a result of the 2015 NPE Show.
- The Polyfuze graphic is unique because it is composed of pigmented plastic, instead of traditional inks. Traditional ink methods degrade over time and fade under weathering and environmental elements. Traditional inks can also be removed with various fuels, solvents and chemicals. Polyfuze graphics can withstand all of these factors and is 100% permanent.
- The Polyfuze graphic is applied using traditional hot stamp machinery and literally fuses or welds into a PE/PP plastic product, becoming a permanent part of the product itself. Because Polyfuze is polymer-based and is compatible with PE/PP plastic products, it is 100% recyclable.
- The Polyfuze graphic can be manufactured to meet compliances such as FDA, ASTM, CPSIA, RoHS and REACH.
