Plastic sheet extruder Quinn Plastics has announced an extension to its range of lenticular products. Quinn Lenticular is a range of polyethyleneterephthalate glycol (PETG) sheets specially created for printing lenticular special effects. This technology is said to offer opportunities for multi-imaging visual printing effects including real 3D, animation, zoom, flip, and morphing. It is available in three LPI (lenses per inch) grades. Quinn Plastics already offered a 75LPI grade; this is now supplemented by 60LPI and 100LPI grades, as well as a 60LPI-3D grade. The extended range is suitable for all kinds of standard and special format applications.
The key applications for Quinn Lenticular are in advertising and marketing communications, on items such as displays, postcards, posters, POS material, magazine covers, DVD boxes, promotional gifts etc. Features of Quinn Lenticular which make it so attractive for these applications include its brilliant clarity; excellent ink adhesion; high impact strength; good chemical resistance; and recyclability. It is also environmentally safe, and meets current food contact legislation.
“We are delighted to be introducing this extension to our product range, and believe that our new portfolio of Quinn Lenticular perfectly suits the demands of this exciting market,” said Charles Shaw, Managing Director of Quinn Plastics and Packaging. “We also offer our customers in-depth technical support, based on our experience and expertise in lenticular printing materials and processes. This will lead to creative collaborations where our specialized expertise and know-how can help develop innovative niche applications for lenticular printing.”
Quinn Lenticular is manufactured at Quinn Plastics’ manufacturing facility in Nischwitz, Germany. The plant uses a strict QC regime as minor deviations can distort the image and destroy the lenticular effect. The production site in Central Germany allows Quinn Plastics to manufacture and deliver Quinn Lenticular sheet in short timeframes. Standard formats are available from stock, while custom formats can be produced and delivered on request within short lead times.
