81UV Series

UV-curing Screen Ink Range, 1-Component


Screen printing inks 81UV are used for decorating plastic containers made of pre-treated polyethylene (LD-PE, HD-PE) and polypropylene (PP) such as cartridges, cans, bottles, tubes, etc.


• Solvent-free UV-curing screen printing inks 81UV have a very high reactivity.
• 81UV inks are delivered in a ready-to-print adjustment and show high viscosity and thixotropy. They cure quickly resulting in a high-gloss finish. Prints show good adhesion and high chemical resistance.
• 81UV is formulated for fast running screen printing equipment for container printing.
• To obtain proper ink adhesion on PE and PP plastics, pre-treatment, preferably with flame, is imperative. Efficiency of pre-treatment also must be adjusted to the high printing cycles.
• 81UV inks are suitable for indoor and short-term outdoor applications.
