Why print with UV for Flatbed, Wide Format and Digital Printing? Two reasons to cure your product: The most important is that UV inks dry extremely fast (seconds, compared to minutes with conventional drying methods).
Also UV inks are friendly to the environment because they produce almost no emissions. They contain no solvents, unlike conventional inks.
When the inks dry, the solvents evaporate and release Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) into the atmosphere. VOC’s have always been a target in the fight against air pollution because they make a key contribution to harmful pollutants like ground-level ozone.
In addition to the environmental reasons, curing with ultraviolet lamps is economically-friendly. The UV lamp and reflector replacements enable Printers worldwide to make converting to Ultra-Violet an intelligent decision.
