The requirement for UV printing is increasing all around the world, especially in Europe, the United States and Latin America. In Europe: UV models of the annual growth rate will reach 7%, UV drying device in the growth rate of 10%, UV inks and on the fastest growth rate will reach 14%. The application of UV technology is expanding such as, plastic, labels, multifunctional sheet and tape printing. In the field of label printing the UV printing is expected to show high speed growth.
The characteristics of UV technology which makes it different are such as the UV dry curing process, printing ink can be cured in a few seconds, improves the production efficiency, can also omit drying and drying process, simple equipment, space saving, completely suitable for high-speed flexo label production.
Basically, UV technology does not need heat, cold is a pure UV curing, suitable for heat sensitive label production; and quick curing (curing time can be less than one second), high productivity and high yield process can reduce raw materials and finished goods warehouse; UV technology of the curing system is a solvent-free system, 100% solvent free formula.
These significant characteristics make UV technology the technology of the future. Highly, suitable for label production and no VOC volatile organic material makes it extremely suitable & environmental friendly. Hence, it has been predicted that technology will become the first choice for more and more label manufacturers.
