What is Aqueous Coating?
Unlike UV coatings and varnishes, water-based coatings features in its quick-drying ability when used in the printing process, and can achieve different appearances, so it can use a variety of application methods.
Water-based coatings are known for environmental protection and are used in the packaging of food, household products and fast-moving consumer goods. It is classified as the "default" coating for printing and packaging.
Coatings are usually used to resist fingerprints and other impurities. The surface durability can also be improved by different coatings. From a packaging point of view, the type of product will largely determine the suitability of using AQ coatings.
What are benefits of water-based coatings?
Non-toxic and environmentally friendly: the treated paper is easy to recycle and will not produce harmful by-products. Water-based coating has the least solid waste after construction, and no toxic cleaning agent is needed in the cleaning process.
Versatility: This is an easy solution when additional finishing is required for printed matter and is suitable for various printing processes, inks and glues. Coating also makes it very easy to write and print on the coating.
Economical and efficient: This water-based coating is mainly used in hot soup paper packaging, which can prevent leakage.
Durability: The coating preserves the fidelity of metallic ink by sealing the ink to prevent exposure to air. Water-based coatings are not easy to turn yellow, making them a better substitute for varnish.
Perfluorinated chemicals (PFAS), refers to a class of synthetic chemicals used primarily in fast food packaging, including fast food paper bowls with lids, trays, cardboard flips and other kinds of food packaging to make them waterproof and oil-proof.
However, this chemicals is harmful to human’s health. As the "forever chemical," PFAS could trigger a lot of health problems, including learning delays, growth and behavioural problems in children; female fertility declines; endocrine system disorder; elevated cholesterol levels; Interruption of immune system; and increasing the risk of cancer. Because perfluorinated and polyfluoroalkyl substances are not biodegradable, they will remain in the environment and human body and gradually accumulate over time.
