Difference Between Varnish, AQ Coating and UV Coating

Coating Option

There are three general types of printed packaging box protective coatings: varnishes, water-based coatings and UV coatings.

Varnishes were first introduced in the printed packaging industry because they are essentially pigment-free transparent inks. Similar to his CMYK inks in general, they are applied during the printing process. The finish can be glossy, matte or satin. Painting is usually the cheapest of all painting options available. Most paints are VOC based and not environmentally friendly. Another disadvantage of varnishing is the time it takes for the varnish to dry on the print surface.

In the late 1970s, waterborne coatings, also known as AQ coatings, were developed. Aqueous coatings are based on water with a water content of 30-40%. It is an environmentally friendly paint that does not emit VOC like paint. AQ coatings are dried by infrared radiation. The advantage is that it reduces the need for powder in the press. It is also resistant to the yellowing commonly found in lacquered boxes that are stored for some time. Ghosting issues are also typically eliminated to comply with environmental legislation.

In contrast to spot varnish (spot UV), water is usually applied to the entire plate. Water, on the other hand, often costs twice as much as paint. It also takes longer to dry than UV varnish.

UV coating is the most popular coating option for paper folding boxes as it offers the highest gloss and abrasion resistance. It starts out as a clear liquid that hardens (dries) quickly under UV light. Available in different gloss levels. The most common application is a spot UV varnish, partially applied to highlight a company's brand logo.

Coating | Purpose of Painting

There are three purposes for painting the surface of the printed paper box.

First, it better protects the ink from smudges, smudges, fingerprints, scratches, etc.

Secondly, the coating can make the printing surface of the box wear-resistant.

Third, add a glossy or matte finish to make the box look nice and attractive.
