UV curing technology is used in the printing industry production line for digital, offset, flexo, litho, screen and letterpress printing. UV printing has a range of benefits including increased durability, high-quality finish, flexibility (so you can print on any surface, absorbent or not) and providing an instant cure.
UV lamps are used to cure the low migration inks on plastics. Printed plastic is used to package a huge number of products from confectionery packaging to shampoo bottles. The UV curing process enables manufacturers to increase their production efficiencies, resulting in greater output and lower costs.
UV coatings provide a slick, highly mobile and very durable surface for the rim of the can to ride on through the manufacturing and filling operations. UV rim coating provides better manufacturing and filling efficiency, resulting in greater profitability. Ultraviolet curing in the metal decorating process offers superior abrasion and corrosion protection for both aluminium and steel cans.
