UV LED Curing Shines Through

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. more »

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

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. more »
