Nickel shims are used in the holographic printing that creates the eye-catching packaging seen everywhere today, from boxes of toothpaste to cartons of beer. As manufacturers work to get the attention of customers and move their products off the shelf, more and more packaging contains the shiny holographic patterns that catch the eye of customers on their way down the store aisle. ROTHTEC® manufactures the holographic nickel shims necessary to create that eye-catching packaging.
Given a nickel master holographic cylinder ROTHTEC® can create working holographic nickel shims. Through the process of holographic electroforming, a holographic image is converted from photo-resist or plastic to metal.
