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.


Convincing technology

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.
