How does Töpfer work?

The MIC®-Process

The use of gold and silver effects is indispensable for high-quality labels and their promotional purposes. However, common processes use colors with environmentally harmful heavy metals. With MIC®  the use of all heavy metal colors has been completely discarded without losing highly brilliant metal effects!.

Our developed methods is particularly environmentally friendly: It makes metal color prints without heavy metals components possible – and still guarantees a brilliant print quality!

Our high-gloss MIC® gold and silver colors reinforce the classy appearance of your labels

The MIC®process is also particularly economical: in contrast to other methods, it requires significantly less energy, since the production of metallized paper is eliminated.
