In today’s large-format inkjet applications, users are more welcome to photo printers, inkjet printers and other printing equipment to achieve higher printing accuracy and quality stability. At the same time, under the theme of green environmental protection, the future green environmental protection printing is the main development direction.
Inkjet machine painting and printing equipment in the application of advertising spray, has been perfect to meet the user’s demand for large and high precision screen production, especially in the application of outdoor painting advertising, eco-solvent ink and UV ink painting and printing have very good performance.
What is the print contrast between uv ink and eco-solvent ink? What is the difference between them?
The eco-solvent ink is compared to the solvent type ink. Its biggest advantage is its environmental friendliness. Weak solvent ink is a non-toxic, light-flavored, non-corrosive, bright, realistic, and sleek, solvent-based ink with stable performance and long shelf life. The image printed by the eco-solvent ink is particularly strong, scratch-resistant and wear-resistant, has the property of being wiped off, and is resistant to water and light and oxidation.
The eco-solvent ink is compared to the water-based ink. The eco-solvent ink overcomes the disadvantages of the harshness of the water-based ink on the substrate and the inability of the produced image to be applied outdoors, while maintaining the high precision of the screen made of the water-based ink.
Therefore, the eco-solvent ink is between the water-based and solvent-based inks, taking into account the advantages of both.
The uv ink is spray-dry, which supports the advantages of quick-swap printing, and has very good outdoor application characteristics, supports different printing media, and has good compatibility with ink. The ink layer after curing of uv ink has high hardness, good adhesion, scrub resistance, solvent resistance and high gloss.
Since uv ink can be used together with white ink, many manufacturers can print some beautiful relief effects. First, use the white ink to accumulate the embossed effect, and then print it again with the color uv ink to achieve the relief effect.
Eco-solvent ink VS Uv ink
Eco-solvent ink in the printing of many materials need to do coating treatment, without coating treatment of printing products are easy to fade. UV ink can be used directly to print many materials without any coating treatment. It is simple, convenient and practical.
Eco-solvent ink can not be mixed with white ink, so there is no way to print the relief effect. It is precisely because of the different essential characteristics between UV ink and eco-solvent ink that they determine their respective application methods and fields.
