Aqueous Coating

Aqueous Coating

An aqueous coating is a fast-drying, water-based, protective coating which is applied in-line on press to attain a selection of finishes more economical price than varnish. Aqueous coatings are not used in a printing unit, as varnishes are further distinguishing them apart from each other.

Aqueous coatings are applied to a printed sheet right after the inks, in a coating unit. Directly after the coating is applied, the sheets are sent through a heated air system that quickly dries the coating. The printed sheets can progress to the finishing department in a matter of minutes, as opposed to traditional varnishes which may need hours or even days to dry.
