LED-UV Coatings

LED-UV becomes more and more important. This technology combines all advantages of traditional UV printing; however - compared to conventional lamps - without the emission of ozone or the use of mercury vapor lamps.

Although there is supposed to be limited need for additional protection due to the immediate curing of LED-UV printing inks, overprint varnishes are indispensable. They finish printed products with valuable visual effects and differentiate the brand from competition. Moreover, LED-UV coatings provide a wide range of advantages, as for example a high reactivity, the very good mechanical resistance or by forgoing anti- set-off powders for optimal surfaces.

LED-UV coatings persuade by means of their simple handling; in their formulation, however, they need to be adapted. Make sure to ask for LED-UV products if you work with this technology.
