UV LED Ink for UV LED Curing Systems
With the popularity of technology and market competition, UV LED ink is getting better and better for UV LED curing systems development.UV LED ink is a kind of ultraviolet radiation which can be instantly cured.
Based on UV LED curing systems,UV LED ink covers UV LED offset printing ink,UV LED flexographic ink,UV LED screen printing ink,UV LED water-based ink.
1.UV LED offset printing ink
It is well known as without VOCs,less poluttion,fast curing speed,energy conservation features.So it could be used at different packing material printing,such as paper,aluminium foil,plastics…ect. Nowadays, it is widely used on cigarette,wine,and drinks’ packing industry.
2.UV LED flexographic ink
It is applied to printing on absorbent/nonabsorbable substrate surface,smooth / rough substrate surface,thin/thick substrate surface.Good printability ,low cost,energy saving and environmental protection to get him becomed one of green ink family.It is wide used on flexible packag, cardboard box,lable, corrugated box’s industry.
3.UV LED screen printing ink
It is on the rapid development of environmental&eco-friendly ink design with energy saving and nontoxic features.It is suitable for outdoor advertising printing,cigarette packets ,wine box,cosmetic ,pharmaceutical packaging ,ects.
4.UVLED water – based ink
The ink is a one-component UV-curable ink that contains a large amount of water. Aftercuring, it will have water evaporation and ink film thinning phenomenon. After ink fill is cured ,it comes out many good character,such as excellent rheological properties,abrasion resistance,high definition and bright color. The apprerance of water-based ink ,it could be applied to gravure printing,flexo printing, and screen printing . It is able to ensure the product quality as well as safer to use while curing.
UV LED inks includes paper inks, plastic inks, metal inks, matte inks and special inks and others. With the UVLED ink growth, we believe that there will be more efficient and newer technology printing material to be developed to meet the continuous development of the printing industry.
