ALPHA-TAPE® METAL EFFECT
For quite some time now, MKT has increasingly been using metal pigments in the printing of ALPHA-TAPE® edge banding. The result is a wide variety of refined decors and solid colors for different applications. A new generation of pigments combined with an improving printing technology makes it possible to harmoniously integrate metal tones as accent colors into the printed image of the decor or to use them specifically as an eye-catcher for plain colors.
Metallic effects, silver shades and metallic colors become more and more indispensable and are also an integral part of decor development at leading board manufacturers by now. MKT decided to specifically expand and further develop this type of product, which is also extremely demanding in terms of printing technology.
In order to enable a better differentiation, please note that all ALPHA-TAPE® edges with metal pigments will no longer be listed under the product design “HR” but as “ME” (metallic effect). ALPHA-TAPE® METAL EFFECT is available for all regular ABS and PP edges, as well as for ALPHA-TAPE ZERO® or our Softforming-Product ALPHA-TAPE® FLEXIBLE.
