Water-based coatings for screen printing

ACTEGA strives to develop innovations not only for more impressive, but also for more environmentally friendly finishing solutions. While screen printing is traditionally associated with UV or solvent-based systems, ACTEGA's portfolio now also includes water-based coatings. UV coatings undoubtedly have their place in the market and continue to be part of a solid portfolio for screen printing companies. However, the acceptance of water-based coatings is expected to increase and represent an important building block in creating a more sustainable printing landscape.

High-quality finishing that appeals to consumers visually and haptically is arguably one of the most effective ways to make packaging and printed products stand out.
