Varnishing

Varnishing is a core product area for Celloglas. It is often combined with other decorative effects to enhance printed materials.

Celloglas has a screen-applied varnish service, rollercoat and a high-speed twin coating option known as Cellocover. 

Cellocoat

Cellocoat or overall varnish is applied on a rollercoat machine and provides 100% coverage across a sheet. Cellocoat is available with a gloss, matt or silk finish. Cellocoat UV varnish contains a high level of silicone in its formula to aid the slip of sheets in high-speed conversion processes, for example, magazine cover binding, and so does not lend itself to gluing. Cellocoat is often used to provide a glossy overall finish to magazine covers after foil is applied to a header. This is also referred to as book varnish or rollercoat varnish.

Celloscreen Spot Gloss UV

Celloscreen Spot Gloss UV is a screen applied varnish that is used to highlight select areas with a gloss effect. Spot Gloss UV is normally coupled with a Silk or Matt effect stock or laminated sheet. A raised texture can be achieved using a UV spot varnish known as high build UV.

Celloscreen Spot Matt UV

This screen-applied finish creates select matt effect areas within a design. Spot Matt UV is often applied on a gloss effect stock or over a gloss lamination, creating contrast in the design.

Cellotex

A textured varnish can be applied using a screen printing method. The texture is determined by a solid black layer in the artwork file that shows where the varnish is on the sheet. The varnish level can be altered to suit the design - from a glossy effect with a low level texture, to a high build pattern effect all controlled by the screen and the varnish used. The textures could be used to create a leather effect or a repeat decorative pattern or piece of text.

Celloscreen Glitter Varnish

Glitter particles are added to a UV or water based varnish to add sparkle to a design in select areas. The gloss varnish contains metallised flakes, the most popular is silver, gold or crystalina. Other colours are available on request. Glitter varnish is often used for social stationery, seasonal promotions or other decorative designs.
