1For all printing technologies UV VarnishesFor all printing technologies
2UV VarnishesFor all printing technologies – flexo, screen, letterpress and offset.Enhances finish i.e. Gloss or MatteImproves resistance against: chemicals, cosmetics, water, weather, UV light and other propertiesEnhance over-printing of variable image printing (VIP) such as thermal ribbons, inkjet, etc.

8UV Varnish Thermal Transfer Printing To get optimal TTR result“Overcured” UV Varnish shows bad over printability with some ribbons.Use a UV varnish that is specially designed for TTRFollow recommendations from ribbon supplierFollow the instructions from Thermal Transfer printer supplierAim for optimal lay-down of print/varnish as even ink/varnish film is much easier to TTR print (more receptive)Find right compatible combination of printer, ribbon, ink and substrate
