High colour strength
Excellent adhesion properties
Printing speeds of 50-150 m/min (dependent on UV lamp power)
Excellent shrink characteristics, more than 50% with good retained
adhesion (dependent on substrate)
Steam or hot air shrink
Suitable for a wide range of coated papers and films, and label stocks such
Coated PE, PP, PVC, PET, and OPP
Shrink films, typically* PVC, PET, PET-G, OPS
* Due to the diverse nature of shrink films it is essential that each
grade/application is tested thoroughly prior to commercial production.
The suitability for uncoated synthetic substrates such as PP should be tested
before printing. The surface tension should be 38 dyne/cm or above. Corona
treatment should be considered to improve the wetting.
Mix well before use
Process 300-500 l/cm (750-1250 lpi) volume 2-4 cm3/m²
Bases 120-180 l/cm (300-450 lpi) volume 3-6 cm3/m²
Minimum lamp power – 160 W/cm
Clean equipment immediately after use.
Fully cured UV inks will obtain resistance properties 24 hours after printing.
This ink series is not intended for food packaging applications and is not
suitable for direct thermal overprinting.
