GALACRYL® UV-DUALCURE SOFT-TOUCH COATINGS
How UV DualCure technology worksThermal drying followed by UV curing - DualCure means that two curing methods are combined. The applied coating is first physically dried, which is achieved by hot air and infrared. Then the coating cures under ultraviolet radiation through a chemical reaction (crosslinking). As a result, we get the best of two technologies: the excellent soft-touch effect of a water-based coating system and, at the same time, the high scratch resistance of a UV coating system.
„With our soft-touch effect, tube manufacturers have a wide range of options for transforming their products into a visual and tactile experience.”
