UV/EB Coatings

UV coating is a glossy coating applied over ink printed on paper and dried by exposure to UV radiation. UV coating can be applied by silkscreen. UV coating/varnish is glossier than all of the other coatings. 80 text and heavier weights of paper can be UV coated, however, cover weights are preferred. UV can be used on smooth, uncoated papers. UV can be applied on spot locations of the paper or by flooding the page. This coating application can deepen the color of the printed area. Drying is virtually instantaneous when exposed to the correct level of UV light so projects can move quickly into the bindery. Like the other coatings, consult the bindery for projects requiring gluing. A printed page with UV Coating applied has a very shiny and also slightly sticky feeling.
