How Does UV Ink Work?
In today’s fast-paced printing industry, meeting high-quality production standards is crucial. One innovative solution that stands out is UV-curable ink. Unlike traditional solvent inks, UV ink offers a range of benefits that can transform your printing process.
The Components of UV Ink
Verytack UV ink is composed of four key elements:
Monomers: These are the fundamental building blocks of the ink, providing control over viscosity, softness, hardness, flexibility, and elongation characteristics.
Oligomers: Oligomers enhance ink compatibility with various substrates and enable adhesive compounds and reactive resins to bind the ink with the material.
Pigments: They give the ink its vibrant color but must consist of finely ground particles to ensure optimal dispersion. Particles under 200 nanometers are coated to prevent clumping and nozzle clogs.
Photoinitiators: UV light exposure triggers the cross-linking of oligomers and monomers, a process known as polymerization. This curing process requires no heat or air.
Why Choose UV Printing?
UV printing is a photomechanical process that instantly transforms liquid ink into a solid upon deposition. This technology is incredibly versatile and can be used on various substrates, including paper, synthetic paper, fabric, wood, aluminum, acrylic, plastic, glass, canvas, PVC, and polystyrene. The advantages of UV printing over other processes are significant:
