Kustom Group Launches Aqueous Coating 'Soft-Feel' Overprint Varnish for Specialty Folding Cartons

Published on 2011-08-10. Author : SpecialChem

KS-9807 Soft-Feel Overprint Varnish is a tactile aqueous coating that is very pleasing to the sense of touch and exhibits an ultra-matte appearance that is visually stunning to the eye. The combination of these two effects will bring a new dimension to flexo printing on paper and paperboard substrates. Typical applications include specialty folding cartons and labels.

Soft-Feel is a durable coating that exhibits excellent rub properties. In addition, it is very likely that jobs overprinted with Soft-Feel can be spot UV-coated, hot foil stamped, imprinted, and evaluated for other finishing processes.

Performance Characteristics:

  • Soft-Feel exhibits an excellent matte appearance and non-burnishing characteristics.
  • A normal overprint volume anilox configuration should provide the desired film thickness for optimal "Soft-Feel" properties.
  • KS-9807 exhibits excellent rub and scuff resistance.
  • KS-9807 has been used successfully with UV and water-based flexo ink systems.
  • This coating "MAY BE SUITABLE" for hot foil stamping, off-line UV coating, imprinting and other finishing applications. KS-9807 should be completely evaluated under production conditions using the actual substrate, ink, and materials for foil stamping, off-line UV coating and imprinting to ensure satisfaction throughout the entire process.
  • Ensure that the web is thoroughly dried or cured to avoid blocking in the rewind. KS-9807 Soft-Feel also works for sheetfed litho aqueous applications. They also have Kentucky Shine press-applied Soft-Feel products for sheetfed and web heatset applications.
