Varnish

Julia Bรถrmann

Varnish Why do we use varnish? Gloss provides printed products with a better overall look. It increases the attention paid to the product. The colour of high-gloss prints appears more intense (greater depth of color), that is, more chromatic and at the same time somewhat darker. The colourful glossy effects can be expressed more succinctly: a glossy black appears to be blacker than the matt black and a glossy red darker and more intense than a normal red. The quality of high-grade printed products can be considerably impaired by scratches on the substrate. The surface of the substrate can be put much more under stress if it is protected by varnish. The abrasion from abrasion is better.

Different types of print-varnish or water-based varnish Print varnish: – like colourless printing ink 75% solid content drying through oxidation

Water based varnish: – without pigments components: matt or glossy – with pigment components: gold or silver about 70% water drying through evaporation of the water

UV Varnish: – best result 100% solids content setting through chemical reaction

What does gloss mean? Gloss is a characteristic of the surface of a material. It is the mirror that always has the best gloss. On an absolutely smooth surface all the gloss is reflected below the glazing angle and is only visible in this direction of angle.
