Cast and CureTM (C2TM) is a decorative coating process that integrates “casting” and “curing” techniques to form a consistent high-quality surface that can include ultra-high gloss, matte and holographic finishes on a variety of substrates. This effect can be created in both sheet fed and web fed (flexo and gravure) environments. C2TM is an excellent application for the decorative print market and can be incorporated with security and anti-counterfeiting features.

Cast and CureTM is also a sustainable process. By using ultraviolet inks and varnishes there are no undesirable and harmful VOC’s. In addition, it can make packages more easily recyclable by eliminating the laminated metalized films used in traditional holographic processes. The most significant benefit is this is all achieved at a fraction of traditional costs.
