Pearlescent varnishes for printing
Pearlescent varnishes are transparent varnishes which shimmer and shine like pearls.
By using the right type of a pearlescent varnish, along with a selected colour of an underprint (usually black) it is possible to obtain metallic colours: golden and silver.
The thicker the layer of the varnish, the better the pearl-like effect.
The most visible and spectacular pearl-like effect is achieved when light is shining directly on an ink.
These products can be used for refining packaging of luxurious cosmetics, liqueurs, pharmaceuticals, etc.
