THE ADVANTAGES OF USING EB COATINGS:
• Highest Gloss
• Highest Scratch and Abrasion Resistance
• Excellent adhesion to films
• Consistent C.O.F.
• Environmentally friendly and recyclable
• Safe for food and for people
EB COATINGS = SIMPLY THE BEST
EB cured coatings or overprint varnishes (OPV) are specifically designed for the packaging industry and have a variety features that include different levels of gloss, scuff resistance, coefficient of friction, printability, slight angles, as well as the lowest migration of residual components. EB OPVs can be formulated with the following features:
• Low Cure
• Low Migration
• Shrink Sleeve
• Thermal Transfer
• Tape Release
TACTILE SPECIALTY OPV
• Water-based and EB Soft Feel
EB cured OPV ’s meet European standards, such as the Swiss ordnance, have ultra-low migration and extractables are EUPIA compliant.
