Coatings protect packaging from external impact like abrasion, scratches and indentations. They are applied directly to the carrier material in coating plants by means of rollers. The most commonly used types of coatings, particularly in offset printing, are print coatings, water-based coatings, UV-coatings and special coatings.
Spot coating is used to highlight particular visual elements with matt or gloss contrasts and achieve special colour effects. Surface finishing with coatings and effect colours helps to improve the appearance of a product and emphasize its quality.
