TerraWet® Water-based Coatings

Protection and finishing of your printed products

Water-based coatings (also known as dispersion coatings) protect the printed product, provide a fast further processing, deliver the right finishing and extend the printed product by valuable functions. TerraWet® stands for a broad product portfolio of water-based coatings for the printing industry.


Water-based coatings by ACTEGA are leading in the market. They demonstrate a high quality and 
innovative strength.



Water-based coatings dry physically by absorption of the coating into the substrate and the evaporation of water. When drying with hot air and infrared, the water is removed from the coating. The polymer particles approach each other and form the coating film. 

Due to their many advantages, TerraWet® water-based coatings have established as a leading technology in graphic arts.

Water-based coatings by ACTEGA offer excellent processing capabilities, high application safety and conformity with legal regulations.
