Recommendations
  • Sedimentation possible in pearlescent varnishes. Completely homogenise before use.
  • In the case of flexo pearlescent and interferential varnishes, use an anilox roller with a screen ruling between 60 and 100 l/cm to optimise the transfer of the pearlescent ingredients.
  • Carry out a test before any overprinting operations (overprinting or varnishing).
  • Maximum storage time: 1 year.
