Water-Based Coatings for Labels

A sustainable, high-quality finish in no time

Water-based coatings are available in a variety of gloss levels—including gloss, satin, and matt—as well as with soft-touch effects. Not only do they dry quickly, boosting the efficiency of your processes; they are also recyclable and biodegradable, so they do their part in protecting the planet.

ACTEGA’s water-based coatings deliver excellent performance, and they offer effects and functions for a wide range of labeling applications, including pressure-sensitive labels, shrink sleeves, and in-mold labels
