EPV passed the phase 1 of the accreditation test for the euro with good result. Only the circulation trial has to be done and PNO Global expects the official accreditation in the first half of 2018! EPV is a high quality varnish with special types for cotton, polymer and inkjet application. EPV is already used for mass production and printers asked quotations as alternative for the SICPA varnish because EPV is very price competitive and high quality. With EPV central banks get a better position in a tender process.
Eco Secure Varnish (varnish with a proven third level feature) is already quoted as alternative for the other Level 3 features such as M-feature. Using EPV and ESV, Central Banks and printers can save and win.
EPV varnishes are produced by PPG.
