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.
Lamination is a process that involves bonding a thin, transparent film — typically, polypropylene, polyester, or nylon — to the surface of the press sheet or other substrate.
Film lamination process offers a variety of options to choose from. Customers generally opt for lamination to protect the print products from wear and tear.
Mylar Heat Seal
Mylar heat seal is a two-sided application and can be applied either flush on the four edges of the sheet or with a film lip around edges to prevent liquids from entering into printed substrate.
This application is popular with postcards, menus, business cards, notifications, and flyers.
