Quick & hassle free creation of counter dies by single operation relief-hot foil embossing.

PRAGO Therm is a thermoplastic counter die material in the form of a foil. 

PRAGO Therm will provide relief hotfoil embossing in a single operation, for horizontal and vertical operating embossing machines and flatbed to flatbed applications.
 
In the course of short-term contact with the metal embossing die heated in the machine to a temperature of 130˚C, the foil is welded to the PERTINAX base plate and shaped to form a counter die according to the metal embossing die.

PRAGO Therm will also create counter dies deeper than 0.25mm. Several PRAGO Therm foils are superimposed. In the course of their contact with the heated metal die the foils are welded together and to the PERTINAX base plate. It is thus ensured that the entire depth of the metal embossing die will be completely filled out.

Sheets of 0.25mm thickness are suitable for multiple-stage metal embossing dies i.e. where different depths are required. Also available in a 0.15mm thickness for structured metal embossing dies.
 
10 sheet pack PRAGO Therm size 200 x 200 x 0.25mm & 20ml of separating compound (sufficient for a 400m² die area).

25 sheet pack PRAGO Therm size 200 x 400 x 0.25mm & 100ml of separating compound (sufficient for a 2,000m² die area).

Instructions for the use of PRAGO therm:

Position and fix the metal die in the press. Heat the machine to approx 130˚C.

BASEPLATE - Pertinax  Cut a suitable size piece and roughen well using emery paper. The baseplate is 0.5mm thick. When embossing is carried out on a press plate, a piece of cardboard of 0.5mm thickness should be placed under the baseplate to compensate for the normal packing height of 1mm.

Fix the baseplate on all sides to the press surface using cellotape.

Pres the foil to be embossed against the baseplate. All contours of the metal die must be clearly visible. If necessary, adjust under the baseplate/

SEPERATING COMPOUND  Only when the contours are close together apply separating compound sparingly onto the baseplate with your fingers and leave to dry.

PRAGO Foil

  1. Place an appropriate piece of PRAGO therm foil over the pressed contours on the baseplate and fix them with a piece of cellotape.
  2. Place a piece of the foil to be embossed on top of the PRAGO therm foil and fix.

PROCESSING

  1. Close the press slowly (manually, if possible) and keep under pressure for 3/4 to 2 minutes.
  2. Open the press slowly. Remove excess material from the baseplate and from the metal die, if necessary.
  3. Place a new piece of the foil to be embossed over the finished counter die and possibly a piece of paper (approx 100g) on top. Fix both with cellotape.

Set temperature and pressure. The embossing process can now begin. 

Note when using 0.25mm thick PRAGO therm: if the contours of the metal die are deeper than 2.5mm, place two or more pieces of PRAGO foil on top of the other.

Packed Dimensions & Weight: 240mm x 210mm x 30mm 340g
