What is UV glossy coating?
UV Coating is a clear liquid spread over the paper like ink and then cured instantly with ultraviolet light.
It can be used as a spot covering to accent a particular image on the sheet or as an overall (flood) coating, this is called spot UV.
UV coating gives more protection and sheen than aqueous coating (AQ). However, it is more difficult to recycle than the other coatings.
Keep in mind that it is a thick coating that may occasionally crack when scored or folded.

Difference between matte and AQ coating
This will be best illustrator by an image, above you see the same image printed with aqueous coating (AQ) and matte coating. AQ coating gives brighter color on the image in general, while matte coating makes the color a bit more muted. Furthermore, matte coating gives the cardboard a silky smooth finish but is also more prone to scratching. If the artwork is mostly dark or black, the scratching may become more obvious on matte. If that is a concern, stick with AQ or UV gloss coating.
