Applications of Fedrigoni Ispira

Ispira papers and boards are ideal for packaging, commercial printing, inserts and  brochures,  wherever  the  need  is  to  feel  a  special  touch  and  to  show  a  futuristic design.

Printing suggestions

Fedrigoni Ispira can  be  used  without  problems  with  the  main  printing  systems:  offset,  blind  embossing,  hot  foil  stamping,  thermography  and  screen  printing.  The  use  of  digital technology, such as Xerography and ink-jet must be tested in advance to check  effectiveness.  The  surface  features  low  microporosity,and  consequently  the  inks  do  not  dry  by  absorption  of  the  vehicle.  Polymerisation  in  offset  printing  on  sheets  is  achieved  by  oxidation;  therefore  oxidising  inks  need  to  be  used.  Excellent  results  have  also  been  achieved  with  UV-dried  inks.  In  screen printing, inks for plastic surfaces are recommended. We dissuade to use Fluorescent  inks.  In  addition,  it  is  essential  to  control  all  the  printing  process  variables,  especially  the  fountain  solution,  wich  must  be  used  in  minimun  dosages. Anti- setoff is useful, while low-pile delivery is required. Drying times depend on the ink load and to what extent the process variables are ensured, and  can  range  from  around  6÷8  hours  up  to  over  12  hours.

Converting suggestions

Good  results  can  be  expected  with  all  the  main  converting  process:  cutting,  die cutting, scoring, folding, glueing and lining (substance 120 g/m2). Ispira’s special  finish  greatly  reduces  surface  microporosity,  making  the  paper  inert  to  the  normal  hot  melt  glues  used  for  making  brochures.  To  overcome  this  characteristic,  we  recommend  using  a  polyurethane  (PUR)  type  of  glue,  which  guarantees  an  excellent  bond  between  the  cover  and  the  book  block  and  a  high  degree  of  elasticity  when  opening  the  brochure.  Varnishing  and  plastic  laminating must be assessed in advance. The varnishing coated with an offset machine  is  almost  fully  absorbed  and  therefore  does  not  improve  gloss  or  protection, therefore we suggest to use acrylic or UV-dried varnishes. The special soft surface finish, may give rise to micro defects with plastic laminating caused by incomplete adhesion of the film to the substrate. We remind that only for the black  shade  “Mistero”  when  the  surface  is  forcefully  rubbed  against  another  white surface, some black particles can be transferred on the white surface
