Robyn Smith - President/Publisher: Len Prazych - Vice President “As enthusiastic as we are to further educate the mar- ket, we’re also eager to partner with the industry’s best. Eagle Systems has clearly established themselves, both in America and abroad. We’ve worked with Mike King and his team for several years now and increasingly appreciate their incomparable passion and dedication to the printing and packaging community. They’re all about quality, pro- ductivity and of course sustainability.” notes Co-Founder Tim Cain. “We’ve simplified the pro- cess, cut turnaround time significantly and really worked with service providers and brand owners to help them bet- ter understand how Cast & Cure can benefit them in both packaging and promotions.” Cast and CureTM (C2TM) is a decorative coating pro- cess that integrates “casting” and “curing” techniques to form a consistent high-quality surface that can include ul- tra-high gloss, matte and holographic finishes on a variety of substrates. This effect can be created in both sheetfed and web-fed (flexo and gravure) environments. C2 is an ex- cellent application for the decorative print market and can also be incorporated with security and anti-counterfeiting measures. Breit now controls the majority of the American market, distributes films into over 35 countries, and works with just about every major CPG globally, including Procter & Gam- ble, Colgate, Gillette, General Mills and Crest. “Already this year, sales are up 40 percent from last year and more than 20 percent from pre-pandemic years. By year’s end we suspect we’ll surpass a 50 percent increase,” adds Cain. “The demand for Cast & Cure is skyrocketing and we don’t believe it’s even close to cresting.”
