Transilwrap Company Inc. has entered into a co-operative arrangement with Azuna LLC to be the exclusive supplier of Azuna’s patented 3D printing technology. The line of Azuna’s clear polypropylene is designed to create “eye-catching visuals” for point-of-purchase, packaging, signage, publishing inserts, direct mail, cards and other printed materials.
“We are thrilled to add the Azuna line of products to our portfolio of printable plastics,” said Michael Reid, National Market Manager for Transilwrap of Canada Ltd. “Our customers are continually looking for special effects that broaden the scope of and go far beyond traditional marketing and advertising.”
The Azuna technology is unique because it is not based on applying challenging lenticular prepress and printing processes. According to Transilwrap, the “magic” of applying Azuna technology is based on the substrate, which can be applied to a surface through UV litho, converntional litho-, screen printing, or UV digital flatbed production. Azuna is also a completely recyclable product.
For more than 75 years, Transilwrap has been manufacturing and converting plastics for the thermal laminating, printing, industrial, specialty packaging, and graphic arts markets. The Illinois-based company has a Canadian division headquartered in Scarborough, Ontario, with additional offices in Delta, British Columbia, and St. Laurent, Quebec.
