Technical Coatings & Adhesives

Coatings serve a broad range of needs, from protecting a surface to bringing additional functional or aesthetic properties.  Spring Coating Systems has a broad portfolio of technical coatings, adhesives and primers.  Spring Coating Systems also provides specialty formulation services to adjust products to specific printing conditions or to develop new applications.

A World of UV-curable and Water-based Coatings

Spring’s coatings and adhesives are available in both UV curable and water-based systems.

Over-print varnishes can bring scuff resistance, chemical resistance and differing visual effects from gloss to matte.  Special effects such as soft touch coatings or pearlescent add a luxurious feel to consumer products.

In some cases, the coating itself needs to be further finished; for example with hot stamping or personalization through digital printing.  Spring offers a wide range of solutions to these diverse applications.

Digital Print Coatings: the next generation

Digital printing presents particular challenges for ink adhesion and drying as well as scuff and scratch resistance.  In addition, many coatings do not adhere well to standard digital inks.

In addition to over-print coating for digital printing, Spring has formulated primers for ink-jet printheads as well as primers for HP Indigo.  Flow-LV is a UV-curable flexo primer which provides adhesion for UV inkjet inks to film substrates.   The IJC range of water-based ink jet primers provides superior anchoring, definition and bleed resistance to all water-based inkjet  systems, including memjet.  The low-cost primer coating for HP Indigo printing provides good adhesion on virtually all printing substrates.  In addition to a full range of primers, Spring Coating Systems has developed over-print coatings for HP Indigo printers and UV inkjet systems.
