PureFX Soft Touch
Our NEW PureFX soft touch varnish has been formulated to offer narrow web printers a cost-effective, sustainable alternative to soft touch laminating film and a more consistent and durable finish compared to water-based soft touch coatings.
Demand for tactile finishes is increasing with brand owners seeking haptic coatings that add a premium touch to a consumer package or label. But achieving a UV soft touch effect often presents challenges for narrow web printers due to the nature of UV free radical curing. With our new soft touch varnish, we rose to the challenge to develop a high-quality UV flexo product.
The soft, smooth tactile effect is perfect for providing a premium quality feel on labels and other printed packaging. With excellent overprintability, press stability, and high rub resistance, it is a finish particularly well-suited for end-use markets including cosmetics, beauty, personal care, baby care and beverages.
Formulated for excellent adhesion, fast cure, high chemical resistance and low gloss levels, our PureFX soft touch varnish is suitable for printing on substrates including coated PE and PP, aluminium foils and papers.
Food packaging compliant, our soft touch varnish complies with the regulations and guidelines for non-direct food contact packaging applications, and is suitable for finishing both conventional UV flexo and digitally printed labels and packaging.
