Shield-Tek™ Versatile
Water-based Liquid Laminate Coating

Provides a durable, long-lasting, protective finish. In addition, the ‘Versatile’ coatings feature a proprietary adhesion technology that allows for optimized bonding to a variety of U.V. inks and substrates.

The ‘Versatile’ coatings are outdoor durable, come in Gloss and Matte variations, and have the widest range of possible applications such as: Canvas Prints, Wall Coverings, Banners, Signage, Billboards, Self-Adhesive Vinyl, Poster Board, and Labels.

Premium U.V. light stabilizers inhibit U.V. light reaching the substrate. Safe, water based, low VOC, non-yellowing. Designed for commercial application, applicator, and flood coaters. For higher viscosity needs, such as for Brush, Roller or Spray application, Versatile 3010 (Gloss) and 3055 (Matte) are recommended.
