Xeikon is introducing two new toners, MatteSilver and PalladiumSilver, for use with its presses, primarily aimed at label and packaging applications.

The two silver metallic toner colours are the first products in the new Xeikon Creative Colors toner group, which focuses on providing special effects for label and packaging print, especially in the consumer products arena.

MatteSilver, explains Xeikon, offers a rich metal finish to the print substrate and PalladiumSilver features a speckled silver sparkle for extra textural interest. The new toners will be commercially available as of Labelexpo Europe 2015, taking place in Brussels, September 29 to October 2.

“With this new Creative Colors toner line, Xeikon is mirroring the capabilities of flexo and offset inks. We are giving label and packaging printers and converters the opportunity to offer brand owners added-value haptic and optic qualities with the Xeikon digital print process,” explained Jeroen Van Bauwel, Director Product Management at Xeikon.
