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

UV coatings from ACTEGA are based on carefully selected raw materials. Whether gloss and matt coatings, textured coatings or silver coatings for brilliant effects - in this extensive product portfolio you will find what you are looking for. Also available are special coatings for food packaging printing (indirect food contact).
