Merck KGaA and Swiss UV coatings firm Schmid Rhyner are partnering to commercialize Merck’s three-dimensional-effect technology in the package printing market. The technology, which relies on pearlescent pigments produced by Merck, tricks the eye by making images and text on a flat surface appear 3-D. Merck says it has already introduced a similar process for plastics made via injection molding.
