BREIT TECHNOLOGIES Cast and Cure for Web applications

Based in Kansas, USA, Breit Technologies is a global supplier of Cast & Cure, including all specialised equipment and film.

The Cast and Cure Process

Cast and Cure is a revolutionary technology that allows an etched image to be applied into a UV coating to produce stunning visual effects on the printed sheet.  The process is performed at press speed and in litho register, utilising standard printing plates.

Cast and Cure uses a UV duct varnish applied to the substrate via a litho plate, which releases an image of the film onto the substrate.  The varnish is dried by a UV source, creating a holographic effect. Then the film is delaminated from the surface and rewound for future use. No material is transferred from the film onto the substrate. Also no varnish is transferred to the film. This allows for multiple uses of the film, which acts as an embossing tool to manipulate the surface of the coating on a submicron scale.

Cast and Cure is an environmentally friendly process using UV inks and coatings. It eliminates the harmful VOCs associated with similar processes. It also eliminates the need to use foil board or other metallised substrates which are non-recyclable.
