Whether UV or water-based coatings and primers, with ACTDigi® you can find the right application for your labels, packaging and commercial prints.

Coatings in digital printing

In digital printing, water-based and UV coatings have to fulfil particular requirements. Decisive for a successful coating in the area of overprint varnishes – also called topcoating – is the good adhesion between coating and inks. Primers, in contrast, are relevant in the area of substrate enhancement. They are applied prior to the printing inks (pre-coating).

Products by ACTEGA are especially adapted to the different digital printing processes, ink systems or toners as well as to the substrate.

Also in digital printing, the trend goes to folded boxes, labels and commercial prints with a sophisticated design and a high-quality finishing."
