Layer applied over the metal coating. Often a spin-coated UV-curable polymer.
Coating applied to a manufactured printed circuit board, prior to assembly with components.
Coating that protects printing on and the face material of a pressure sensitive label from abrasion, chemicals and moisture.
A coating that protects the printing and surface of a pressure sensitive labels from abrasion, sunlight, chemicals, or moisture.
Solvent or water based coating that is applied to a printed sheet to protect the ink against scratching and scuffing and to enhance the overall appearance.
A layer of material applied over a substrate to minimize the effects of moisture, chemical attack, and mechanical damage.
Any coating that protects the surface from deterioration.
A coating that protects the printing and the surface of a pressure sensitive label from either abrasion, sunlight, chemicals (their fumes and dilute solutions) and moisture or a combination of these.
Optical discs are given a clear plastic or lacquer coat that protects the metallic layer. Even with this coating, small scratches, pressure, dirt and other markings can make the disc unreadable. It is only designed to protect the disc under careful handling conditions. The coating also prevents air from reaching and oxidizing the metallized layer which would render the disc unreadable.
Protective layer of lacquer or polymer applied with a nozzle and baked under UV rays to protect the layers of dye and gold (or silver).
Coating which is intended to provide protection against the elements.
