Scodix Polymers

Ensuring reliability, high-end quality and overall performance of the complete Scodix solution

Scodix digital enhancement printing allows ordinary products and applications to become extraordinary creations and saving on costs.

Scodix polymers are clear liquids. These polymers are cured with UV lamps on the Scodix press to produce the numerous effects designed to make sure products stand out.

In conventional processes, embossing requires two dies and a separate press run after any varnishing or laminating.

Texture is a combination of how a print looks and how it feels to the touch and is directly associated with the build-up of the Scodix PolySense™ on the surface. Create high elevated surfaces together with different densities, allowing the user to turn the flat printed image into an experience for the user who touches and feels the surface.

Environmentally friendly

  • No VOC: the Scodix PolySense™ polymers do not emit any VOC’s into the environment, therefore it does not affect the operator at the print shop, nor the environment we all try to protect.
  • Non-toxic: non-toxic and safe to use, the Scodix PolySense™ polymers have been tested and found to be suitable for a normal working environment.

The Scodix PIC (Percentage Image Calculator) is a software tool that calculates the amount of Scodix PolySense™ polymer applied to each printed sheet. The software is offline and can be installed on any computer or over the web.

For the customer sales team, the PIC supports the pricing of jobs based on the amount of polymer needed for the job. For the Scodix press operator, it allows for a better forecast of the precise quantity of polymer required for jobs. Users can calculate the quantity needed for entire job copies, and plan the pricing and margins to charge customers.
