Overprint Varnishes

Packaging Coatings & Inks

High gloss & special effects

  • Soft touch
  • Dead matte
  • Scratch and rub resistant

High gloss and special effects such as metallic, matte or soft touch overprint varnishes have become popular recently. Our EBECRYL® 898 can be used to lower or eliminate matting agents without hurting coating properties. In addition, our UV curable soft touch oligomer EBECRYL® 8896 (soft feel) in combination with EBECRYL® 8894 (resistance properties) allow different haptic effects, from velvet to rubbery. We are also currently developing new UCECOAT® products that provide a range of finishes from dead matte to a metallic mirror effect.
