UV Coating is a clear liquid applied over ink printed on paper and then cured instantly with ultraviolet light. Ultra-violet (UV) coating is a great way to make products more scuff-resistant and attractive, as it offers more shine and protection than varnish and aqueous coatings. When you want to make your printed pieces really stand out, ultraviolet (UV) coatings are an ideal solution. Finishes can range from a flat matte appearance to a high-gloss, which gives products a distinct “wet” look that makes colors and images jump off the page. UV Coating is popular for a wide variety of applications including postcards, book covers, product sheets, brochures and business cards.
