Requirements for UV coatings

The requirements for a packaging depend on who is using it when and what for. Thus, different factors count for the brand owner and the packaging manufacturer compared to the buyer. On the one hand, these are economy, processing method, production speed, effect and food conformity. On the other hand, we speak about functionality, environmental friendliness as well as the tactile and visual aesthetics of a packaging. WESSCO® UV coatings optimally combine both demands.
