Application Data

DigiGuard® UV 3200 should be evaluated in the laboratory using the actual ink system and substrate to ensure that leveling, intercoat adhesion gloss and other performance characteristics are acceptable. In general, UV coatings may not exhibit complete intercoat adhesion over some ink systems. A primer may be considered for use if this property needs to be improved.

Storage

Avoid contact with eyes, skin and clothing. Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Use personal protective equipment as required.
