Enhancing quality and cost optimization with Opacicote, the high-opacity precoat mineral solution
Discover the benefits of Opacicote
The Opacicote range is tailored to customer needs. When used in pre-coating on board substrates, the products offer high whiteness, high opacity and excellent surface coverage. This in turn means they are suitable for coating on all types of fiber quality, providing a perfect surface to apply a topcoat and reach all gloss, smoothness and printability targets.
Opacicote has been proven to provide high brightness, especially on low brightness board (single layer coating)
