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.
