Product of the Week 11-5

Product of the week is KS-836, Ultra Reticulation Strike-Thru Gloss Litho UV OPV. As a reticulation strike-thru product, KS-836 is formulated for spot application under KS-494 or KS-693. This OPV gives a beaded rain look when paired with KS-494 and a similar, but more open pattern, when paired with KS-693. Not only does this strike-thru create a contrasting visual effect, but the coating also provides a rougher textured surface in areas over the KS-836 and leaves a smoother area where the OPV isn’t.

 

 

Other Characteristics:

  • Gives multiple strike-thru patterns
  • Adhesion to select plastic stocks
  • Excellent litho properties.
