Primers, Specialty Coatings and Varnishes

DSC supplies a series of conventional overprint varnishes that produce special effect finishes. These include Duocoat Drip Off Hybrid Varnish, Fine and ‘Orange Peel’ versions. They have been specifically formulated to reject the application of a subsequent gloss coating to give a matt spot result.


DSC’s hybrid matt reticulation varnishes work synergistically with the Crystal Effect hybrid ink range. The varnish and coating can be applied over dry conventional ink or inline over UV ink.


DS Chemport’s overprint varnishes include:

  • Conventional Matt OPV
  • Conventional Satin OPV
  • Conventional High Gloss OPV


As part of the extended range, DS Chemport carries a Soft Feel Matt Emulsion and has the ability to post blend Pearlescent pigment into an appropriate coating base as required.
