UV 5000 Inflatable Varnish


UV 5000 Inflatable Varnish is a high speed curing varnish that inflates once it passes under the UV light.  The purpose of this varnish is to give a three-dimension effect for Flexographic, Rotogravure and Silkscreen printing methods.

The inflation will vary from 16 micron to 28 micron, depending upon the printing application method.  The varnish can be formulated as a clear gloss, frosty semi-gloss, frosty matte, pearl finish, color shifting, holographic or glitter finish.


Flexographic: Use 70-line, 43 BCM trihelical anilox for best results.

Silkscreen: Use 110-mesh for best results

Rotogravure: Use 70-line cylinder for best results

Yield will vary from 30,000 to 50,000 sq. inches per lb., depending upon the printing method.


UV 5000 Inflatable Varnish is packaged in 1-gallon and 5-gallon containers and 55-gallon drums.
