Applications of Fedrigoni Freelife Kendo

Freelife  Kendo  papers  and  boards  are  ideal  for  any  kind  of  publishing,   packaging   and   commercial   printing.   They   are   held  in  high  regard  for  coordinated  graphic  materials,  special  publications, brochures and booklets where natural sensations are required.

Printing suggestions

Fedrigoni Freelife Kendo can be used without problems with the main printing systems: letterpress,   offset,   blind   embossing,   hot   foil   stamping,   thermography  and  screen  printing.  The  macro-porous  surface  suggests  the  use  of  oxidative  drying  inks.  Good  chromatic  result:  attainable  ink  load,  dot-gain  and  printing  contrast  are  analogous to those obtainable onto pure pulp substrates.

Converting suggestions

Varnishing and plastic laminating must be assessed in advance. The  varnish  coated  with  an  offset  machine  is  almost  fully  absorbed  and  therefore  does  not  improve  gloss  or  protection.  Screen-printing  varnishing  achieves  better  results,  although  it  is  often  necessary  to  perform  two  shots  to  achieve  a  distinctly  evident result. The surface roughness typical of uncoated papers may give rise to micro defects with plastic laminating caused by incomplete  adhesion  of  the  film  to  the  substrate.  Good  results  with  major  processing  operations  such  as:  cutting,  die-cutting,  scoring, folding and glueing.
