THE SCIENCE BEHIND UV
A printing machine (sheetfed, web, metal decorating, etc.) applies UV ink or coating on the surface of the substrate. Then, specially designed UV lights dry the inks and/or coatings instantly by exposure. Unlike conventional printing, UV enables printers to print directly onto non-absorbent materials like plastics. This technology can also be used in different industrial applications as it allows drying, in the fraction of a second, materials like silicones, adhesives, resins and others.
