Silk-matt printing varnish Z381

This varnish has especially been developed for the finishing of printed matters done on matt-coated materials.

  • Supports the contrast dull/glossy
  • Very good film Formation
  • Excellent abrasion resistance
  • Unproblematic processing with or without water
  • Short drying time
  • Can also be used wet-in-wet

The special advantage of this varnish is that the matte character of the printing substrate is ensured also after the coating process and that at the same time the silky gloss of the image on the matte-coated papers is preserved through the use of the varnish.

The contrast matte/glossy therefore remains even after the varnishing process!

This varnish forms a very good hardening of the film and therefore offers an excellent abrasion resistance.

This varnish should only be used if also the image should have a matte effect.

The unproblematic processing with or without water, permits also a partial varnishing of certain parts of the printed matters.
