Aqueous Coating

« Back to Glossary Index

Aqueous coating is a clear, fast-drying, water-based coating that is used to protect print pieces from dirt, fingerprints, and the bumps and tears of daily life. It provides a durable, yet high-gloss, satin/soft touch finish. Because it is water-based, aqueous coating is often used in packaging food, household products, brochures, catalogs, and fast-moving consumer products.
