ROQ Foil is an accessory that ROQ created in order to apply foil within the workflow of its screen-printing machines. Foil is in the category of what the screen-printing world calls “special effects”.  These special effects are some of the unusual techniques applied during the screen printing process that give the finished product a different look, feeling, and touch. This is a way of dramatically increasing the value of a piece. The most common examples of these techniques are glitter, 3D, flock, and in this specific case foil.

Foil has the look of metallic paper. It is “stamped” on a textile surface by using heat. Usually, this is done by a heat press and an operator dedicated to this task. With ROQ’s technology, you save 90% of  time and all the labor cost. This is achieved because our ROQ Foil works connected with any ROQ screen printing machine, thus eliminating the need for a dedicated operator.

The process is as follows:

In one screen, glue is applied on top of the fabric at the exact spot you want the foil to be in. Next, the fabric goes into the ROQ Foil. Each ROQ Foil, depending on the design to be printed, can apply up to 3 foil colors per passage. The mechanical process is very simple. The temperature is set by the operator at the beginning of the run. Then, the ROQ Foil puts the foil on top of the fabric followed by a heat press  that will apply the necessary pressure and heat so that the foil adheres to the textile surface.

With the ROQ Foil, applying foil is no longer an expensive and lengthy operation. No labor and time is spent on this process since it is embedded in the workflow of the screen printing machine. Making this a very fast and profitable process. The added value of the finished pieces will be much higher.

ROQ holds the patent for the ROQ Foil.
