UVPO Series

UV-curing Screen Ink Range, 1-Component


UV-curing screen printing inks mainly for printing on Corona pre-treated polypropylene materials (PP), such as PP double wall sheets and rigid foils. In addition, also suitable for polystyrene (PS), some types of PVC as well as paper and cardboard.


• Solvent-free UV-curing screen printing inks UVPO have a high reactivity.
• UVPO inks are delivered in a ready-to-print adjustment with medium viscosity. They rapidly cure to a glossy finish.
• The cured ink film shows good adhesion and water resistances, medium flexibility and good mechanical abrasion resistance.
• Due to the medium flexibility of the ink film suitability of UVPO for further processing such as cutting, punching, creasing should be confirmed by corresponding pre-trials.
• UVPO inks show a medium weather resistance.
• Addition of 5% hardener Additive UV/H, which mainly acts as adhesion promoter may further enhance water resistance, chemical resistance and adhesion. This especially applies when printing PP materials. When processing screen inks UVPO with hardener stackability of prints may be limited.
• Note: After UV-curing UVPO inks will continue to react (post cure effect). Therefore, final adhesion values may only be achieved after 1 – 2 days, especially with PP materials.
• Note: Manufacturers often supply PP rigid foils and PP double wall sheets already Corona-treated. However, quality of that pre-treatment may deteriorate depending on storage times and conditions. Therefore, pre-trials to confirm printability have to be carried out for each application.
