UV curing for graphic arts printing

Printing with UV curable ink

Commercial printers and in-house printing operations have been using UV inks and overprint varnishes for many years to gain higher production speeds, easy clean up, and no VOC emissions.

UV curable inks maintain dimensional stability at the highest production speeds and ensure the consistency of high opacity, bright colors with superior print quality. Printing presses, from flexographic and gravure to screen printing, digital inkjet and offset, come with UV curing already installed or UV curing units can be retrofitted onto existing presses.
