TerraGloss® UV Coatings

Finishing on the highest level

UV coatings provide finishing on the highest level. They perfectly protect the printed product and enable a smooth further processing. Also, they offer many advantages: A high reactivity, good running characteristics, a very high scratch and scuff resistance as well as a high chemical resistance. TerraGloss® stands for a broad portfolio of UV coatings for the printing industry.

UV coatings by ACTEGA are based on carefully selected and tested raw materials. Their broad application spectrum offers optimum solutions.



​​​​​​​UV coatings cure under ultraviolet radiation by means of a chemical reaction, a chain polymerization. During the radiation with UV energy, the photoinitiators become highly reactive particles. These particles crosslink the acrylates so that a plastic film is formed within milliseconds.

UV coatings by ACTEGA persuade by the use of high-quality raw materials, advanced formulations and a trouble-free processing.
