Lecta unveils new functional Metalvac papers

December 11, 2023  By PrintAction Staff

Lecta has developed new metallized papers with functionalities specifically oriented towards flexible packaging and recyclable products.

The Metalvac Seal is a functional metallized paper with heat-sealing properties on the back. It is suitable for graphic and flexible packaging applications (flowpacks, sachets, envelopes, or wrappers) for non-food products (collectible cards, stickers, toys, hotel amenities, etc.) and food products that do not require a specific barrier. The shiny metallized side is suitable for offset printing (conventional and UV), flexography (UV, solvent, and water-based), and gravure.

The Metalvac Barrier WV is a functional metallized paper with heat-sealing and barrier properties against water vapour, light, and a certain level of grease. It is suitable for flexible packaging applications for both non-food and food products (confectionery, coffee, tea, powdered products, etc.). It is heat-sealable on the metallized interior side and printable on the exterior side through gravure, flexography, and offset printing.
