Gold Bronze pigments for Screen printing:

offers the advantage of being suitable for a very wide range of surfaces such as paper, cardboard, plastic, leather, textile, glass and metal. Even non-flat surfaces and substrates can easily be printed. We recommend using grades with a D90 value which is 3 times smaller than the screen mesh size. Our BEGOLD and GOLDIP grades accentuate the glitter and sparkle in the end product while our GOLDING grades delivers more opacity.

Gold Bronze pigments for Offset printing:

is an indirect printing process in which an inked image is first transferred from a plate to a rubber blanket and then to a flat substrate. The process requires extremely small particle sizes in 3-8 micron range. We recommend our OPAGOLD grades.

Gold Bronze pigments for Flexo and Gravure printing:

coarser particles can be used (up to 14 microns). Our pigments are odor-free thanks to the unique dry milling process. This parameter is important for e.g. food packaging. We recommend our OPAGOLD grades.
