You must understand foil release

Those who have used foiling services before will be well aware of their uses. In addition they will probably know that we are the best in the business when it comes to this profession. We constantly strive to exceed expectations. Not to mention, our team makes use of state of the art equipment to achieve fantastic results.

From the viewpoint of specifying foils, the most crucial element to know about is release. For you to comprehend it, you will need to look at the construction of the foil. Here, you will have a number of thin layers. The release layer basically acts as the glue. As a result it holds the foil onto the substrate.

Not all glues are equal

Foiling servicesYou will probably be well aware how many different types of glue there are to choose from. They all perform differently. Certain ones are going to stick to anything when they are half dry. Rubber cement is a good example to use here. On the other hand, some other glues require you to keep two objects together for a long period before the glue can get to work properly.

It is similar to this with foils. Some demand you to press the die for a while. In other cases, it will only need to touch the foil. Naturally, we have to ask why this is. Do we need to have so many different glues? Why don’t we just have a glue that sticks very well?

The issue with this is that your foil may go down to a position where you don’t want it. Alternatively, it could end up sticking so well that it ends up pulling far more foil than it is supposed to. We are aware of these potential issues and do all we can to make sure we offer the most precise foiling services.

Three groups of releases

Because of the difference in glue and adhesion, we have separate releases of foil. Normally, we break it down into three groups. The first is easy release foil. Here, the foils are able to come off the backing roll very easily. Such a situation is ideal when your substrate isn’t perfectly flat. It also comes in handy when dealing with large blocks.

Up next is medium release foil. This is what we call the in-between or all-purpose option. It is great for bigger areas and detail. However, it is recommended that you use them for medium to fine detail. This is in comparison to easy, which is more for larger areas.

Last but not least, there is the tight release foil. This is specifically for work involving fine detail. Here, you will get a fair amount of pressure into a compact area. Additionally, you will want the foil to go down rapidly and not fill the small areas in.
