Technical terms R

RGB-color space 

Abbreviation for Red Green Blue. These are the three primary colors used for additive color mixing. Below you see these 3 colors as well as the resulting colors when they get mixed. The retina in our eyes contains receptors that are sensitive to red, green and blue. Televisions and monitors use these colors to create an image. A lot of applications also use RGB values to define the colors of images and objects. Unfortunately we cannot print using red, green and blue. That is done using cyan, magenta, yellow and black instead.


Retarders are slowly evaporating thinners used for slow printing speeds or for printing of fine details (process printing).

Removal of coatings

The term removal of coatings includes the removal of templates from the tissue that are no longer needed. These are special compensation poet liquids, after a short acting the reconstitution of the template effect. However, this requires the cleaning process, since color remains an optimal networking of template layer through the liquid. With the help of a high-pressure device the remains of the template will finally be solved from the tissue.

Relief embossing 

In contrast to plan embossing, which is characterized by one level, the relief embossing gives multiple plans levels to a substrate in the appropriate places. In this respect, the "embossed high" and a depth version differ. As the names suggest, once the substrate is marked in the direction of the beholder, "embossing deep" is directed away from the viewer into the interior of the substrate. Like the plans embossing the relief embossing can be done in various ways: Variant prism, Outline, round and sculptured.
