Used on logo badges, stickers, keychains, pens or any item that has an edge, epoxy dome coating is a great option for giving a product that elegant and glossy appearance. It significantly increases the perceived value of all products enabling a clear and multicolour logo or message to be displayed on the product.
Epoxy resin is commonly used as coatings through a process known as Epoxy doming. Epoxy doming involves applying epoxy on a surface that has an edge. Surface tension prevents the epoxy from flowing off the edge, and when the epoxy hardens, it leaves a clear, waterproof resin epoxy dome covering the surface.
When pressed, this resin epoxy dome will dent and recover to its orginal shape. It protects the underlying logo print from scratches and gives it a 3D effect. This durable epoxy coating is also UV resistant, hence will not turn yellow or lose its gloss over years of exposure in the sun. Epoxy coating works well with most kinds of printing and can be creatively applied to a part of an item to make it stand out through spot doming.
Note: Epoxy resin is a resultant substance of mixing a thermosetting epoxide polymer with a hardening agent through a process known as curing. This epoxy resin is waterproof and extremely versatile. It has wide applications as it is able to acquire many properties endowed by various industrial treatment processes. Depending on whether it is fast or slow setting, Epoxy resin can be rigid, flexible, transparent, opague or given a color.
