The general advantages of LED curing are:

  • Energy-saving compared to conventional UV technology
  • Radiation energy is available immediately
  • (no waiting times for starting up or by cool down)
  • minimal heat input into the substrate
  • high durability of the radiators
  • possible pointed radiation
  • Lamps do not contain toxic substances, i.e. mercury
  • No ozone development at the used wavelengths
  • Lacquers for absorbent substrates, such as paper and cardboard 

The new lacquers of Weilburger are characterized by good gradation, very high gloss / good matt values as well as minimal yellowing tendency and are currently available for the both wavelengths 385 nm and 395 nm.
