Great question! UV-LED printing offers instant curing of a digitally printed image, with the ability to print onto a WIDE variety of printable media. With instant curing, it is possible to achieve a unique layered texture, or raised printing effect, providing a dimensional (tactile) print. UV-LED Printing is environmentally friendly, with minimal emissions and low energy consumption.
UV curing references the photopolymerization process that uses UV energy to change a liquid to a solid. Upon absorption of the UV energy, the photoinitiator (PI) produces free radicals which initiate cross-linking with binders (monomers and oligomers), in a polymerization reaction to cure or solidify the ink. WHAT! WHO CARES? What is important is what you can do with UV LED printer technology.
Just about anything! UV-LED Printers can print on a wide variety of media including: acrylic, glass, metal, powder coated media, polystyrene, PVC, wood, ABS, art board and canvas, a variety of vinyl and many additional RIGID and FLEXIBLE media.
UV-LED inks allows for instant curing with strong adhesion and weatherability for lasting and durable prints. Although adhesion promoters are advised for some media, many can be printed easily without any additional preparation.
UV-LED Ink is Versatile!
