UV LED Curing Shines Through

Digital Printing
UV LED curing refers to a technique that uses energy output from the light emitting diodes (LED) in the ultraviolet (UV) spectrum to treat inks, coatings, adhesives and other UV curable materials. The energy generated by the ultraviolet light triggers the chain reaction resulting in polymerisation of the material thus hardening, or curing, the material. Read more »

Understanding Ultraviolet LED Wavelength

UV LED Curing Wavelength Spectrum
UV wavelengths typically are measured in nanometers (nm). Nanometer, a unit of length, is equal to one billionth of a meter. UV light-emitting diodes (LEDs) have a narrow spectral output centered on a specific wavelength, +/- 15nm, with typical commercial UV LED lamps emitting at 365nm, 385nm, 395nm, or 405nm wavelengths.

Technical, Reliable & Beneficial: UV LED has Impressive Endurance, Brings Advantages to Package Printing

Sistemi di polimerizzazione
Ultraviolet (UV) curing is a photopolymerization process that uses energy to change a liquid to a solid. Upon absorption of the UV energy, the photoinitiators produce free radicals which initiate crosslinking with binders (monomers and oligomers) in a polymerization reaction to cure or solidify the ink, coating or adhesive.
