UV Dryer for Perfume Bottles
In contrast to traditional solvent-based inks, the new UV ink technology uses completely
new raw materials and reaction mechanism that ensure a faster and more reliable
screen printing production process. On closer examination UV technology offers advantages
for all concerned.
The most important benefit of UV Technology:
Fast drying process
High production output
Little energy consumption
Great design options
Overprintable and overstampable
Excellent edge definition
Resistant to all major test procedure
UV inks have a drying time measured in seconds, which is also known as radical curing.
This offers the possibility of printing at speeds that have not been possibl with
solvent-based inks. For industrial applications, in particular, much higher cycle
times can be achieved on modern, high-speed machines.
In addition, the use of UV inks permits the perfect reproduction of the print output
for subsequent orders.
Since the ink contains no volatile components and the viscosity does not change
(shade shift) a consistent batch print equality can be achieved.
The fact that the ink does not dry in the screen permits the faultless printing
of the smallest details and half-tones. This is a very positive feature for long
print runs and multiple elements, in particular.
These advantages ensure that a positive increase in productivity is possible in
many application areas. They ensure improved economic and competitive attributes
when dealing with long print run or high throughput (faster processing/packing).
The unrestricted screen permeability of UV inks is an additional positive argument
in favour of these ink systems for screen printer. Downtime is considerably decreased
during the printing process.
The 'absence' of solvent is very user-friendly and is another reason for using UV
