UV Coatings



UV coating is one of the most effective finishing solutions. It enhances the vibrancy and richness of colours and makes great visual impression.

UV coating is a process whereby a polymer resin changes from a liquid to a solid with the help of an ultraviolet light source. UV coating can be a direct replacement for lamination and provides a protective covering that adds value to any product.

Overall UV — Gloss Finish
Spot UV — Flat Gloss, Raised Gloss, Glitter UV, Raised Glitter UV, Textured UV
