Coating Treatment

Varnish

Varnish is essentially ink without pigment. It can be wet-trapped (printed in-line at the same time other inks are laid down), or dry-trapped (run as an additional pass through the press after the initial ink coating has dried). It comes in gloss, dull, and satin.

Aqueous Varnish

This is water-based coating. It is used to protect and enhance the printed piece. We have in-line and off-line coating options. Spot Coating is the application of varnish to selective areas to create highlight or contrast effect Aqueous comes in gloss, matt, and satin.

UV Curving

This is a clear liquid spread over the paper like ink and then cured instantly with ultraviolet light. It can be a gloss, dull coating and can be used as a spot covering. It gives more protection and sheen than varnish or aqueous coating. Since it is cured with light and not heat, no solvents enter the atmosphere.

Lamination

A thin transparent plastic sheet applied to usually a thick stock, providing protection against liquid and heavy use, and usually accents existing color, providing a glossy effect. There are two types of lamination cold lamination and thermal lamination.

Cold Lamination
It is done using water based adhesive as a binder between subtract and film. This kind of lamination doesn’t use heat to laminate it uses pressure is the critical parameter. This comes in gloss and matt only.

Thermal Lamination
Heat sensitive laminating adhesive like EVA ethylene vinyl acetate is used for this purpose. The properties of this lamination are high gloss, high stiffness and high bond strength. There are 3 types of thermal binding. BOPP for gloss, matt and velvet; PET (Polyester) for gloss and matt; Metallized for gold and silver.
