UV/K Series

UV-curing Screen Ink Range, 1- and (alternatively) 2-Component


UV screen printing inks for technical and industrial applications.
UV/K is mainly used for decoration of e.g. front panels made of metal and coated surfaces as well as for duroplastics. They are also suitable for legend printing on PCB´s.


• Solvent-free screen printing inks UV/K are UV curing.
• UV/K inks are delivered in a ready-to-print adjustment. They result in a glossy finish.
• Because of the very high degree of cross-linkage of the binder, UV/K screen inks require high UV energy values for curing.
• The cured ink film shows excellent mechanical abrasion resistance and good chemical resistance.
• Due to the binders screen printing inks UV/K are not suitable for outdoor applications.
• If required, UV/K inks can be processed alternatively as 2-component ink with 5% hardener Additive UV/H to improve ink adhesion on the above mentioned substrates.
• Note on multi-layer printing: The very high mechanical and chemical resistance of the cured UV/K ink film – which is due to the high level of cross-linking – may affect intermediate adhesion. This can often be avoided by reducing the UV curing energy when curing the lower ink layer(s). However, this must be confirmed carrying out corresponding pre-trials. At the same time, you have to check if the prints still meet the resistance requirements.
• Note: Because of the variety of metals, coatings and duroplastics, pre-tests to confirm suitability of UV/K inks are essential.
