Aqueous vs UV Protective Coatings
Both aqueous and UV print coatings are administered on printed products for protection or to achieve certain visual effects. Aqueous and spot UV coatings can provide protection from moisture, scuffing, scratching and finger prints. They can also be applied to one or both sides of a printed piece to create a glossy or dull finish or can be applied selectively to highlight a certain visual element.
The main differences between aqueous and UV protective coatings is that aqueous is a clear, fast-drying water-based coating, while a UV coating is cured through the direct exposure to ultraviolet light. UV protective coatings utilize specialized compatible inks that are activated by the ultraviolet light. Additionally, due to its water-based nature aqueous coatings are more environmentally friendly than UV coatings.
