Market Definition:

A machine based process of relief printing in which pre-dried ink or foils are transferred to a surface at high temperature and high pressure. In other words, the method of applying metallic foil or holograms to materials such as light papers, carton board, laminated board, plastics and corrugated board, using heat and pressure foil with the colors that are applied to a product through a process known as hot stamping. The pigment is placed on a clear film, which acts as a carrier that transfers the color onto the product. Another layer of the foil consists of pigmented sediments, and a third layer is a heat-activated adhesive that sticks the sediments onto the product. Hot stamping foil is primarily used in in the packaging industry, and its applications include food, pharma, tobacco, and luxury goods packaging, as well as labels for products such as wine and spirits. Beyond packaging, hot foil stamping is extensively used on banknotes, greetings cards, and other industries.
