Information about the Metall Embossing Die

An important factor in the manufacture of counterpressure dies is the metal embossing die. Here you will find further information on the metal embossing die

Resistant to Circulation
For High-Quality Embossing

In more than 50 countries, on all continents, printers emboss with PRÄGO products – with platen and cylinder printing machines, automatic punching and embossing presses.

∎∎∎∎ PRÄGOplast

The self-adhesive counter die material guarantees the preparation of the male and the running of the machine within a few minutes.

∎∎∎∎ PRÄGOhart

The two-component material cures completely in 15 minutes and – like all PRÄGO products – is indefinitely resistant to the print run.

∎∎∎∎ PRÄGOpaste

Ready-to-use paste that hardens in approx. 30 minutes. It allows the various dies to be carefully dressed without the hardening process starting before the machine can be shut down.

∎∎∎∎ PRÄGOtherm

A counter die material for relief foil hot stamping from the finest relief contours to large relief areas.
