Keywords:  dull, gloss, glossy, luster, satin
A low-gloss or non-gloss finish. A UV-curable clear coat may also be used to produce a matte or textured finish.
An unmelted tin coating having a dull appearance.
A dull finish given to paper or board that is characterized by an absence of gloss or luster. This quality of paper does not reflect light as completely as a glossy finish. However, a matte finish paper is often preferred to a glossy finish paper because it matches the light-absorbing characteristics of laser printer text. Coated paper, which receives a minimum of calendering, has a matte finish. See CALENDERING GLOSSY FINISH
