Demetalizing method of a metallic layer is useful no matter how was the hologram prepared previously (single layered, two layered, with master, etc) and can be use for numbering or text imprinting. This layer is always highly visible and readable. Another way of using this method is to create translucent windows e.g. for visualizing series numbers to which the sticker will be pasted on. Demetalization is also used for transparent holograms production. These holograms are not supposed to cover up the pictures to which they are pasted on. Last but not least, it is a method that allows to create a sticker with arbitrarily shaped edges – e.g. in shape of a seal or a letter with burnt edges. Samples of using this method are found in section of demetalized safety self-adhesive stickers made in advance.
Holographic Certification Stripe
Self-adhesive certification stripe with the width of 0.354in and length of 218.72yd is delivered loaded on a bobbin and therefore can be easily applied to any width or length of materials to which the stickers need to be pasted on. It is primarily suggested as the cheapest alternative to method of hot-stamping – ironing holographic items to paper media (diplomas, certificates of training, protocols about tests etc). To achieve a similar result as to hot-stamping we use the thinnest film we can to make it the least visible and the least disruptive when pasted on a document. For the same reason the layer of glue that is applied is thin. After applying the stripe on a document it looks like a natural part because it stands out minimally. Final effect is close to hot-stamping method without mechanical processing and therefore this method is much cheaper and applicable to any surface or any document.
Hologram is made by a single layered technology on an aluminum basis which unused areas are demetalized. This method of demetalization is used for making areas that do not carry graphical motives or texts transparent. Increased transparency of holographic self-adhesive sticker is expressed by much smaller influence on original graphical form of a document to which the safety sticker was pasted on. At the same time, holographic effects stay highly visible.
Safety self-adhesive sticker is produced by a periodically followed graphical emblem (guilloche) of a width of 0.236in and periodically repeated words „secure-certificate-protected“. Length of one period in the text is 10 cm. Holographic layer color is silver. Self-adhesive stripe is sold in meters and its multiples.
