What is UV Printing?

UV printing has been growing in popularity in the printing industry for decades, and it’s understandable. UV printing is a unique form of printing that utilises ultra-violet light to produce vibrant, detailed prints on a variety of surfaces. Whether it’s paper, plastic, fabric or even glass, UV printing provides an eye-catching result with exceptional colour accuracy and intensity. It is also suitable for outdoor applications because the printed material is protected against fading caused by heat and sunlight exposure. This makes it perfect for signage, promotional materials and other products that require long-lasting impressions. Not only does UV printing work faster than traditional methods, but it’s also more economical – making it a viable option for just about any budget.

How does UV Printing work?

UV printing uses a UV curing process via LED Lamps. UV curing is a process used across many industries these days to harden inks, adhesives and coatings quickly. It’s incredibly efficient because it not only helps to speed up product cycles but also makes for an environmentally-friendly alternative to more traditional techniques. UV light is shone on a product, causing the molecules to become excited and form chemical bonds that allow for faster drying times and smoother finishes. Thanks to this quick-drying method, businesses can reduce energy costs and production time drastically, as well as decrease any hazardous chemicals from being produced or released into the environment.
