The chance to shine with quality finishing. High-quality surface finishing of print products is growing ever more popular. It gives print shops the opportunity to expand their range of print products and helps them create a lasting impression on the market.
Finishing with drip-off effects. Print varnish is applied in the final printing unit to the areas that are to have a matt appearance. Next, the coating unit is used to apply a conventional full-area high-gloss coating that drips off the areas previously given a matt coating. This maintains the matt effect of these areas and gives the remaining areas a gloss surface. Conventional inks are used for the process colors. The Performance Kit Drip-off Solution from Heidelberg® provides a coating combination comprising precisely coordinated components to generate the required drip-off effect.
Areas of application for Saphira drip-off coating. The Saphira® Performance Kit Drip-off Solution offers an attractive gateway into inline finishing. The contrast between matt and gloss areas can be used to produce unusual effects. This type of finishing is ideal for commercial print shops looking to stand out from the competition. Typical areas of application include quality magazines and catalogs that are subject to high demands in terms of register accuracy and the ability to deliver matt/gloss effects that remain true to detail (fine text, lines, and screened motifs).
