Aqueous coating is a fast-drying, water-based, protective sealant particularly resistant to smudges and fingerprints.
Aqueous formulations afford greater protection than varnish and have gloss characteristics that fall between varnish and UV coatings.
A high gloss finish has less rub resistance and conversely, greater rub resistance reduces the degree of gloss. They are not water/liquid resistant because the cured coating does inhibit complete drying of the inks on the folder.
Advantage of aqueous coating over conventional varnish:
- Higher gloss
- Better clarity
- Faster drying
- Will not yellow with age
- Higher abrasion
- Higher rub resistance
- Environmentally friendly (water-based)
- Glossier finish on lesser grade papers
