LithoGard™ SATIN Low-Gloss Quickset Conventional OPV

Above: overprint varnish being applied with a sheetfed litho printing unit. LithoGard conventional litho OPV's are applied using this method.

LithoGard SATIN sheetfed conventional overprint varnish is Kerley's premium, semi-gloss, low-color overprint varnish for the highest quality applications that require a non-yellowing finish. LithoGard SATIN offers the perfect middle ground between LithoGard GLOSS and LithoGard EXTRA DULL in terms of surface sheen. LithoGard SATIN contains polyethylene, but no PTFE, so dried films have moderate scuff resistance. LithoGard SATIN “satin” OPV is formulated to be used in the press fountain, just like an ink. This means that LithoGard SATIN varnish can also be used a “spot” varnish for selective application of varnish on the printed sheet. 

LithoGard SATIN also contains Tung Oil (aka: Chinawood Oil), enabling the film to continue to air-cure to a very hard, yet flexible and more chemically-resistant film. LithoGard SATIN, when properly applied and adequately air-cured, is capable of withstanding rub tests of several dozen strokes. LithoGard SATIN contains cobalt drier, so it will form a skin when it is exposed to air. Contains silica, which must be stirred from the bottom of any container before usage.

LithoGard SATIN will pass Calif. AQMD maximum 300 g/L VOC content requirements, and contains 72% bio/renewable materials.
