Site of Manufacture (and Product Code)
Typical applications include sheet-fed or reel-to-reel printing on paper or paperboard substrates where excellent gloss and minimal gloss-back are desired. DigiGuard® UV 2000 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.
