Montana Cover

Production Guidelines

Printing and Embossing
Montana Cover yields excellent results when screen printed, foil stamped or embossed.

Screen Printing
Montana is ideally suited to screen printing. Use solvent based inks for best results, and screen mesh sizes as recommended by ink manufacturer.

Foil Stamping and Embossing
Montana Cover is ideally suited to foil stamping and embossing. Consult your foil supplier and/or embosser for additional testing samples and more information.

Drying Time
Due to the nature of acrylic coatings, there is no substrate absorbency to improve ink set and drying time. When applied to a nonporous surface, they require longer to dry.

Cutting and Die-cutting
Montana Cover can be guillotine, rotary or die cut. All normal steel ruled die cutting processes may be used on Montana. It can be cleanly punched and will readily accept all conventional fasteners, such as grommets in one or two pieces.

Most water based adhesives work well with Montana. Consult your adhesive supplier for more information.

Scoring and Folding
Montana has excellent hinge/fold characteristics.To fold or bend Montana, the stiffness of the sheet at the bending line must be lowered, and a flexible hinge formed within the sheet itself. A satisfactory score must reduce the bonding strength between the individual plies of the pressboard sheet, so that the plies will delaminate when the board is folded on the score line. In addition, the width of this delamination portion must be great enough to allow the stock to squeeze down into the bead on the inside of the bend, so that a fulcrum is not formed near the surface of the sheet which will rupture the outside ply when the bend is made. The "hinge" effect is achieved only when the inside of the bend is on the female die side (protruding side after scoring).

Montana Cover is ideally suited to die cutting.

Folding, Scoring and Gluing
Montana Cover’s performance characteristics are well suited to folding, scoring and glueing.

LB per FT2 = BW

$/FT2 = LB. per FT2 X $ per LB

$ per MSF = $/Ton X BW

$ per LB. = $/CWT

$ per Ton = 6000 X BW + $ per MSF X 6000

M Weight = L X W X BW

$ per Sheet = M Weight X $ per LB.

Number of Sheets = Total Weight
                              LB. per sheet

Order Weight = LB/Sheet X Number of Sheets

Linear Feet in Roll = 41.67 X Net Weight (lb.) X 864
                                       Roll Width X BW

Roll Weight = OD2 - ID2 Roll Width X BW X .00182
Caliper [.020" = 20]

Roll Weight from Lineal Feet = Roll Width X BW X Lineal Ft.

Price per Linear Foot = Weight (lb.) X $/cwt.
