Difference between PANTONE Metallics and PANTONE Premium Metallics.

  

What is the difference between PANTONE Metallics and PANTONE Premium Metallics?.

PANTONE Metallics dates from the mid-1980's. The colors are formulated using seven basic metallic inks which contain metal flake, which leafs to the surface as the ink dries to create the metallic effect. This 'leafing characteristic' can vary from job to job, leading to inconsistencies in the final printed result. Further, the metallic colors also use certain of the PANTONE Basic Colors which are chemically incompatible with UV coatings, and it is common to use coatings to improve the lasting power of the printed matter.

.

PANTONE Premium Metallics addresses both of these issues. The colors are formulated using a specialized non-leafing silver, the pigment coming from Eckart, and also use basic inks that are fully UV-compatible.

.

PANTONE Metallics and PANTONE Premium Metallics colors are unique and are not intended to be interchangeable.
