Operating properties of photopolymer stamps for hot foil stamping
Abstract: Hot foil stamping of printed products is very popular in postpress processes. Use of photopolymer materials for stamps producing is a well known process. This work provides operating properties (hardness, deformation and thermophysical properties, wear resistance) research of novel photopolymer materials for direct laser engraving of stamps for hot foil stamping. Research results comparison with requirements to photopolymer materials for printing plates and stamps made it possible to provide a conclusion about suitability of the researched materials for stamps producing.
