Create an unlimited spectrum of colours and effects even on the toughest substrates

API’s next generation foil, the CB Series, is a new over-printable hot metallic foil that delivers a bright reflective shine even on the toughest substrates.

The CB Series is designed to be extremely effective on porous, absorbent, more challenging substrates typically used for wines and spirits packaging, while the added over-printability feature opens up a wide new spectrum of design capabilities.

Over two years in research and development, the CB Series delivers superior performance characteristics on a range of presses, but particularly effective in rotary applications.  A dust free foil, the CB Series delivers sharper definition and can be used for both very fine detail and large area coverage.

The wider operating temperature of the CB Series improves production efficiencies with the option for machinery to run at lower temperatures or faster speeds.
