WISKO COATINGS U 1177 is suitable for application via the majority of off-line screen coaters.

GENERAL TECHNICAL DETAILS:

WISKO COATINGS U 1177 has been formulated in order to provide the very highest levels of gloss when applied over dry ink via off-line silk screen coating equipment. This lacquer has been formulated to provide excellent levels of levelling, with the bare minimum of bubbling. Recommended screen sizes for application of gloss lacquers is 140.

In order to avoid candaling (scratch off of the lacquer) it is important to ensure that the ink has been given sufficient time for all of the solvent to disperse. Measures to insure this does not become a problem include allowing at least 24 hours before varnishing, and storing printed material in conditions that do not restrict solvent evaporation (i.e shrink wrapped).

WISKO COATINGS U 1177 contains silicones that are detrimental to the surface tension, therefore making this product unsuitable for foil blocking or glueing. Foil blockable and glueable versions are however available.

WISKO COATINGS U 1177 has been formulated to cure rapidly, whilst providing a ultra smooth finish, with maximum rub resistance and optimum visual and tactile enhancement.

STORAGE AND HANDLING:

UV Lacquers should not be exposed for long periods of time to temperatures below 5oC or above 35oC.

WISKO COATINGS U 1177 have a 12 month shelf life - if unopened and stored in the correct conditions. Manufacture date is available on the label.
