 SPOT UV

Design Considerations

Substrate

7 to 24 pt. coated stock is recommended for this application. 100 lb. coated stocks can be used but are not recommended due to possible curling problems. This process requires a right reading, emulsion up, film positive (clear area where no coating is required).

The following applications can be used with Spot UV:

- Matt OPP
- Flat Gloss
- Raised Gloss
- Glitter UV
- Raised Glitter UV
- Textured UV

Alternative Processes

This process is only available as a UV cured application in a Gloss finish.

General Coating and Lamination Processes

Offset spray should be kept to a minimum. Low-wax, non-bleeding inks should be used. Metallic inks are not recommended. Sufficient time must be allowed for inks to dry before a coating is applied.

Rhodamine red, reflex blue and purple should be avoided if possible. Your ink supplier can recommend inks, or call us for a complementary test and recommendations.

Spot UV can be applied on one or both sides.
