SICURA Jet G2 Varnish
The SICURA Jet G2 Varnish is an UV-curable high performance jettable protective overprint varnish solution designed for industrial inkjet printing on multiple applications, including decorative printing, direct-to-shape printing, packaging and label printing.
The SICURA Jet G2 Varnish has been developed for single-pass, piezo, drop-on-demand industrial inkjet printing at high resolution using printheads from Kyocera, Fuji Samba, Epson or Ricoh (MH5220).
This varnish can be used for printing on rigid as well as thin and flexible materials or in direct-to-object printing projects.
The SICURA Jet G2 Varnish is designed for extremely good adhesion on the Siegwerk SICURA Jet G2 ink series. It provides an excellent scratch resistance and protects the ink from external factors.
This product can be customized and adapted to end-user applications. If needed, Siegwerk can tailor varnish properties (e.g. viscosity & adhesion) and even address further special customer requirements. Depending on the application, Siegwerk can also advise on suitable primers.
Field of use
The SICURA Jet G2 Varnish is designed for single-pass inkjet printing with piezo drop-on-demand printheads including printheads from Kyocera, Fuji Samba, Epson or Ricoh (MH5220) which require low viscosity inks/varnishes/primers. It is NOT recommended for thermal inkjet, continuous inkjet of any kind or any other print technology systems. In any case of uncertainty, please contact our application technology experts via [email protected].
The product is formulated for high performance piezo drop-on-demand printheads requiring low ink viscosity. Well suited for high resolution jetting at high frequencies. Good storage stability.
Dried film performance
Excellent adhesion and flexibility on a broad range of substrates. High scratch resistance.
Safe to use
Secure formulation without hazardous substances (CMR) to ensure safe handling.
Long shelf life (12 months from production date).
