UV Printing

UV printing is a digital printing that involves the use of ultraviolet (UV) light to cure or dry UV ink almost as soon as it is applied to a product. The concept is similar to the desktop inkjet printer. UV printers are the larger format printer, so the printing head moves over the substrates instead of paper (Substrate) moves under the print head. The substrate can be foam board, aluminum, wood, plastic, glass or acrylic. As the UV ink is distributed onto the substrate, specialized ultraviolet lights within the printer are immediately applied to the material over the top of the ink, drying it and adhering it to the substrate. 

In comparison with silkscreen printing, in UV printing, specialized UV inks are used instead of plastic ink (Plastisol). Instead of heat, high-intensity LED ultraviolet lights are used to cure the ink onto the medium that it is printed on. The ultraviolet light follows closely behind the ink as it is distributed onto the substrate and as a result, the ink dries immediately no matter what material (or materials) are used. Since the ink dries almost immediately, it does not evaporate and as such, it cannot spread out onto the material that it is printed on. Additionally, no VOCs (volatile organic compound), ozone, or toxic fumes are released into the air. In addition to the quick-drying capabilities and the eco-friendliness of UV printing, this type of ultraviolet printing method and the associated form of ink transfer can also be used with a variety of materials, including paper, plastic, foil, acrylic, wood, glass, foam etc. 

Benefits of UV printing
UV printing offers a whole host of benefits over traditional printing. The most notable benefits include: 

•    Better turn-around time compared to traditional screen printing due to how the UV printer cures the ink.
•    Increased durability: the UV cured ink is much more resistant to damage such as scuffs and marks.
•    Increased vibrancy: the colors of the UV cured inks are much sharper than the colors that are printed using traditional printing methods.
•    Eco-friendliness as the UV inks and UV curing process itself together release virtually no VOCs.
•    Increased flexibility, as UV printers can print on virtually any material thanks to the UV lights.
