 Commercial Inks & Coatings Solutions

If you use inks and coatings for commercial printing applications, it’s vital that you invest in high-quality solutions that will deliver the strongest and most visually appealing results. You can ensure the best printing outcomes when you partner with a reliable and experienced commercial printing ink manufacturer.

At Magnum Inks & Coatings, we offer water-based and ultraviolet (UV) inks and coatings for commercial printing services that exude quality and professionalism. As your full-service manufacturer, we can assist you with all of your printing needs.

Coating Solutions for Commercial Printing Applications

Magnum Inks & Coatings® offers a selection of aqueous (AQ) and UV-curable top coatings and overprints suited for commercial digital and offset/lithographic printing applications. Our products help your printed pieces look their best while offering functional properties that
facilitate quick handling through the press.

When you choose us as your commercial ink supplier, you’ll have access to a wide range of commercial printing coating products to serve your individual needs. We offer two primary solutions for commercial printing applications:

  • Commercial printing water-based inks and coatings: Our water-based inks and coatings for commercial use are safer and more environmentally friendly than solvent-based solutions due to their many sustainable properties. These aqueous printing products are recyclable, non-toxic, and emit minimal volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
  • Commercial printing UV inks and coatings: UV inks are cured using ultraviolet light after being applied to the substrate. Our commercial UV ink solutions are abrasion resistant and exude a glossy finish that gives colors a shinier, more brilliant appearance.

CommCoat Coatings for Litho/Offset 

Magnum Inks & Coatings® offers a selection of aqueous and UV-curable coatings for offset/lithographic printing applications. These high-performance commercial printing inks and coating solutions are designed to dry quickly, allowing for increased productivity and faster turnaround for your company. Our “work and turn” products help your printed pieces look their best while providing a wide variety of functional properties.

When you use our CommCoat™ solutions, you can expect consistent, comprehensive coverage with dependable scuff and set-off resistance. Our commercial ink solutions are compatible with paper and film substrates and are available for custom formulation. All of our aqueous coatings are suitable for both gluing and printing.

Our CommCoat™ aqueous coatings for lithograph and offset printing include the following press-ready finishes:

  • Gloss: Our CommCoat AQ gloss coating is specially formulated to deliver a high-gloss finish to give your printed products a spectacular shine.
  • Matte: Our aqueous, matte coatings offer a smoother appearance than an uncoated sheet and deliver exceptional image contrast with minimal glare.
  • Satin: You can purchase our CommCoat AQ satin coatings to achieve a reliable protective finish that exudes eye-catching visual appeal for your offset printed products.
  • Low-curl: These low-curl water-based coatings are designed for lightweight substrates. They deliver excellent scuff resistance to lithographic inks and maintain a flat substrate profile.
  • Soft feel: This innovative coating for commercial printing applications enhances your printed product colors while providing a velvety texture that’s soft to the touch.

 

InkLock Coatings for Hard-to-coat Digital Inks

Magnum InkLock coatings have been designed to coat over hard-to-coat digital inks. These coatings give you the ability to lay down a smooth, even film that resists scratching, allowing you to deliver that fantastic printed piece for your customer no matter how challenging the
application.

We tested each of our commercial digital printing coatings in our Middletown, Ohio, facility on digitally printed samples at 12 billion cubic microns (BCM) for gloss, rub, and viscosity. We offer five types of UV coatings for hard-to-coat digital inks:

  • PIPW 6090: This UV gloss coating tested for 84 gloss units (GU) and a 20-poise viscosity with a rub-resistance index of 2,000. It is compatible with Canon and Ricoh products.
  • PIPW 5996: Our digital gloss coating has a viscosity of 24 poise, 2,000 rub resistance, and an 80 GU rating. You can use this product with Konica or MGI printers.
  • PIPW 6002: This UV coating measures 15 GU, making it an excellent matte option. It hits 200 on the rub-resistance index and has a 17-poise viscosity. Our PIPW 6002 coatings are supported by Konica and MGI printers.
  • PIPW 6244: This UV digital gloss coating has a GU rating of 90, making it your high-gloss solution. This HP-compatible coating has a 16-poise viscosity and a rub resistance index of 2,000.
