What is a UV varnish and what is the difference from lamination?
UV varnish is a hard cured coating that is applied to the printed label or flexible package film. It is a popular option as it helps protect the printed graphics from scratching during shipping and handling. It will also add a gloss or matte finish to the finished product. A lamination is a clear or matte film applied over the printed graphics. It offers several advantages over a varnish by adding rigidity to thin films to assist in machine application and adding superior scratch and chemical resistance to the printed graphics. A varnish is typically the least expensive as it uses less material than a lamination. There are also various grades of lamination to satisfy requirements such as high clarity, provide additional fade resistance, or fulfill UL certifications.
