Recommendations
  • The greater the amount of ink deposited, the more intense the mirror effect (up to a certain limit).
  • The metallic effect is better on flat surfaces. On irregular substrates, apply a base to smooth the surface.
  • Before any overprinting operations (overprinting or varnishing), it is strongly recommended to carry out a test beforehand.
  • Any varnishing reduces the metallic effect.
  • Maximum storage time: 6 months.
