Overprint Varnish Market: Introduction
- A varnish is a crystal-clear ink applied as a coating onto a printed piece. In order to prevent and protect the printed piece from moisture, abrasion, and any other possible source of damage, overprint varnish is applied either on press or as a part of the finishing process.
- Overprint varnishes are categorized as high solids, water-based, solvent-free, and UV-?ur?bl?. Key properties of overprint varnishes are stain resistance, shine enrichment, burnish or scuff-resistance, edge fusion resistance, and resistance to discoloration caused by environmental factors.
- An overprint varnish provides glossy texture to the surface on which it is applied; protects the printed surface; and offers excellent abrasion resistance. It dries and settles easily and quickly. Key benefits offered by overprint varnishes such as ink adhesion , heat seal lidding, water resistance, printability, and low odor are increasing the adoption of these varnishes among users.
