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 »

UV LED Curing Wavelength Spectrum

Understanding Ultraviolet LED Wavelength

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. 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 »

LED Curing Technology for Coatings

LED curing solutions are utilized in the coatings industry because they offer highly reliable UV curing due to being a solid-state device. They provide deep through-cure and allow low surface temperatures that enable less expensive raw inputs. more »
