Press release from the issuing company
In the world of super wide format, solvent-based inks have dominated in the transition from analogue screen printing to digital printing technologies, but that is quickly changing.
The move across to UV-curable printers from solvent-based variants is certain to grow as display producers continue to discover the benefits.
Printing rigid substrates, such as glass, wood or coloured substrates gives you more ways to differentiate from your competition. The possibilities are endless.
Printing direct-to-rigid substrates has major economic benefits. Printing to rigid substrates is not only faster, but it is more cost-effective.
Where it might require five steps to produce a rigid display on a roll-to-roll printer, including mounting and lamination, direct-to-rigid printing reduces the process to two steps with as much as a 40% reduction in time and cost.
And we haven't even talked about higher speeds, white ink capabilities and versatility, Download our white paper on the transition from solvent to UV inks here. You'll also find some interesting UV success stories from worldwide users on this page. When can we add yours?
Advantages of UV Ink
UV- inks typically yield more media coverage per litre.
UV inks sit on top of and bond to the media, therefore coverage can be 30% to 50% higher than solvent.
Printing directly to rigid substrates eliminates the need to use acrylic adhesives and polyester or PVC laminates
