WESSCO® POLAR UV Silver Coatings

Sustainable Metallic Effects that Inspire!

As the importance of sustainable packaging is increasing, many companies are already looking for alternatives to film in order to avoid plastic waste and simplify the recycling process. Our WESSCO® POLAR UV silver coatings are an excellent economical alternative to metallized board and hot or cold foil stamping. The highly reflective, brilliantly glossy surfaces are comparable in effect. Moreover, our coatings offer greater flexibility, efficiency and improved sustainability. Processed in an inline printing process, they can be overprinted with suitable inks.

  • Sustainability: In contrast to film technology, less material waste. No plastic film that negatively influences the recycling process.
  • Premiumization: A high value finishing and the premiumization of printed products.
  • Cost optimization: Less costs as no metallized board is required.
  • Improved processes: Avoidance of long material ordering and delivery periods. Free substrate selection. Reduced waste processes.
  • Improved performance: Foils usually must be applied in an additional step.
