We’ve got a new addition in our bindery – a Ultra-violet (UV) Coater to really enhance your upcoming projects. Here’s a primer on our new coater and its capabilities:
- UV coating is a clear liquid that is spread out over the paper and dried instantly by exposure to UV radiation with virtually no emissions. Our machine is a Flood UV coater, covering the whole page, as opposed to a Spot UV.
- The finish can range from extremely reflective and glossy down to a matte finish. It also deepens the color of the printed area.
- UV coating requires a coated stock, preferably cover weight.
- A UV coating protects better than varnish or aqueous coating and protect against friction and fading.
