Printing inks
Coated side and underside: Conventional, UV and IR are preferred
Coated side: Machine or UV. Underside: Machine or UV screen varnishing are both possible. Best results are obtained on top of emulsion sealing. For very high gloss results, it may be necessary to matt UV varnish on top of emulsion sealer before gloss UV varnishing. Good results have been obtained by spot varnishing on solids or dense tones by either method. Any varnish applied directly to unprinted areas of the sheet may cause variations in gloss levels.
