A high gloss, temperature resistant, water based overprint varnish which meets FDA food contact requirements.
Provides good resistance to heat and a low coefficient of friction as an overprint varnish. It has good adhesion to most packaging films and inks and can help protect the print from damage. It can be used in demanding applications where ease of slip over hot surfaces is required - for example in vertical form, fill and seal packaging.
Used over HP Indigo Electroinks® it gives protection to the ink when used in form, fill and seal packaging applications. It offers good slip allowing easy feed of the coated web and is resistant to heat from the heat sealing operation. It can be used in food packaging as a protective overprint varnish.
Delivers a matte finish, heat resistance and rub resistance when applied to digitally printed film.
