What Is UV Curing?

First adapted commercially in the 1960s, UV curing offers numerous advantages over other drying and curing methods. Using high intensity ultraviolet (UV) light, UV curing produces a photochemical reaction that almost instantly cures inks, adhesives, and coatings.
 
UV-cured inks, coatings, and adhesives exhibit improved physical properties over those cured/dried by other methods. Benefits of UV curing include:
  • Greater scratch and abrasion resistance
  • Better solvent resistance
  • Higher finish gloss
  • Improved hardness
  • Superior bonding strength
  • No solvents! A truly green technology!
  • Instantaneous cure! No waiting!
A high speed, low temperature, solvent free process, UV curing acts via photopolymerization rather than evaporation. This allows for near-instant curing, which in turn increases production speeds and reduces reject rates. UV curing systems require less floor space and energy than other types of drying equipment, and the process can help increase yield while minimizing scrap.
 
UV curing has proven useful in a broad spectrum of industries and applications, from medical and scientific device manufacturing to printing and packaging to artistic and educational pursuits.
