- UV-curing Letterpress ink.
- Pretreated PE and PP and other plastics, paper and cardboard
With its continuous research and development efforts, RUCO has become one of the market leaders in the field of UV-curing printing inks. As early as at the beginning of the 1980s, the company developed the first UV dry offset inks. Today several highly reactive and abrasion-resistant UV offset ink series are available. A UV letterpress printing ink with good resistance to solvents and water as well as an ITX- and silicone-free UV Flexo printing ink round off the range offered to the label and packaging industries.
1. APPLICATIONS FIELDS:
Especially designed UV curing inks for the rotation letterpress printing onto paper, cardboard and plastics made of Polypropylene (PE/PP), PVC and polystyrene. Substrates may differ in their chemical structure or method of manufacture. A test for suitability must always be carried
out before printing. Antistatic, Mould Release Agents and Slip Additives may have negative effects on adhesion, and should be detected and removed prior to printing.
The highly reactive UV letterpress inks of series 010 UV show good printability and fast curing.
The inks of 010UV series can be combined with UV screen printing inks. The following processes as embossing and varnishing are possible. A special product test is recommended prior to production. The inks of the 010 UV series are constitutionally free from toxic elements and solvents.
