Shepherd Embossed Films & Foils
We Make the Best Impression!
For more than 40 years, C. E. Shepherd Company has been a leader in the specialty embossing of plastic film, laminates, woven fabrics, paper and foil. Our longevity and success come from a commitment to rigid quality standards and state of the art technology. We are in the forefront in the development of web texturing techniques.
A Broad Range of Capabilities...
Shepherd Company is capable of processing material up to 140" in width and in roll diameters to 36". Our technology permits the embossing of specialized ultra-thin gauge engineered films, elastomerics and highly extensible substrates.
Precision controls adjust to accommodate even the most heat sensitive materials; Shepherd has achieved superb results at temperatures in excess of 500 degrees Fahrenheit. Accurate web tension is achieved through roll speed ratios within .1% thus permitting either absolute maintenance or alteration of product orientation for processing multiple webs of varying extensibility.
...for a Diverse Range of Applications
Our popular embossing patterns include cracked ice, golf ball, taffeta, diamond, wood grain, linen, and hexpin. These patterns made be applied to many engineered films including polyethylene, polypropylene, polyvinyl chloride, polyester and nylon films, metalized films and laminates. Shepherd embossed films are in demand for geo-textiles, industrial mold release films, FRP films, food grade vacuum pouches and medical grade vacuum pouches. Shepherd embossing has enhanced consumer products as well, including bookbinding, solar films, designer window shades and decorative foils.
