For absorbing and non-absorbing printing substrates

This system stands out with its excellent printing properties and adhesion on a large variety of non-absorbing substrates like foil, plastic and metalized paper. Another area of application of this system is coated cardboard and paper. This system can be used on sheet-fed offset machines and continuous form printing machines. The main areas of application are high-quality packaging and labelling.

Properties:


  • Excellent adhesion on big variety of non-absorbing printing substrates
  • Excellent printability
  • High Intensity
  • Fast drying of ink film
  • Suitable for foil stamping and lamination
  • High flexibility of ink film

Storage

UV-inks are only suitable for short-term storage. We guarantee a shelf life of 6 months when stored correctly at ca. 20 °C, without direct sun light.

Important

These FP UV base colours are suited for different plastics, including selected qualities from PP-, HP, PET-and PVC materials. To guarantee adherence and ink transference, we recommend a Corona pre-treatment of 38-44 mN/m. Due to the variety of foil qualities on the market it is absolutely necessary to test under normal conditions whether the chosen inks are suitable for this special foil.
