Think of Scodix as a spot UV with a difference. Scodix is a digital enhancement technology using clear polymer that gives a look similar to UV but with many more advantages. It can be applied in varying thicknesses and percentages that create a look and feel of textures, adding value to any print item. Good coverage should be around 5 to 7% of the page. The clear polymer has an extremely high gloss unit value of 99 Gloss Units (GU) making it the highest gloss available, with a height that can be printed 20 times higher than selective varnish.
A clean, green process that contains no polluting additives, Scodix SENSETM eliminates plates, moulds, chemicals and solvents, while reducing energy consumption. Scodix SENSETM output is non-toxic and recyclable.
