A new line of UV/EB-curable special effects coatings - including pearlescent, glitter and color changing effects - are designed to enhance the appearance of printed materials for commercial and consumer product packaging. One color-changing effect, known as Phantavision, produces different effects depending on the viewing angle. High-contrast color shifts appear with sharp changes in the viewing angles, while smooth changes occur with gradual curves. All of the special effects coatings are designed for both web and sheet-fed applications and can be applied in-line or off-line over most inks, primers and substrates.
