With X-touch®, Achilles has once again improved the possibilities of high-quality finishing in the matte foil segment in several quality features. Velvety soft surfaces continue to enjoy increasing popularity. Unfortunately, not always with the processors of such products. Because these so-called soft foils were often too sensitive to fingerprints and scratches.

X-touch® is now our innovative service for processors who appreciate high productivity with low risk of complaints.

PET-Silver foil

The metallized PET foils from Achilles are characterized by a variety of optical variants. Whether silver, gold or hologram foil, the range leaves nothing to be desired. By overprinting the metallic foils, you can make your product an eye-catcher and get a mirror effect. The aluminum coating significantly increases the barrier effect of the PET foil.

With metallized PET foils, you can combine excellent optics with protective and barrier functions. Our metallized PET foils are also available in gold, which also gives your print product that certain something.

Our PET-Gold foil can be overprinted in offset or screen printing, resulting in a metallic shine. In screen printing in a weakened form. If you do not want a metallic effect partially, the color fastness can be restored with white ink. Furthermore, the barrier effect of the PET foil is significantly increased by the additional aluminum coating.

Excellent shine. Excellent barrier against flavors, gases and water vapor. Resistant to oils and fats.
