Matte coating control

Postby STrivette » Tue Sep 19, 2017 4:33 pm

We are looking to start doing a Matte varnish coating on PET film. We would be laying it down with a 260/7.0 anilox with a continuous sleeve. What is the best way to control & measure the Matte coating. Can it be done with a 939 X-rite?

you likely want a gloss meter BYK micro-gloss or similar, otherwise you will be relying on the mk.1 eyeball - which can work if you have dependable staff. Have you asked your coatings vendor how the QC their coatings for gloss?
