Instead of having solvents in the ink that evaporate into the air and absorb into the paper, HUV inks instantly dry on press when they are exposed to an ultraviolet light. Do you know what this means? Less chemicals in the environment and on your paper! Plus, HUV printing produces the most vivid colors and superior details.
Because there are no solvents used, this system produces no dangerous Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), requires no ventilation, has a higher percentage of recyclable content, and cuts cost because of reduced drying time. In addition, HUV printed foil-type metallic inks on paper and plastic mean a fully recyclable product.
