Application of environment-friendly gold and silver cardboard UV ink

With the rising global environmental protection demand, governments in the world have stricter controls over atmospheric organic volatiles and toxic substances than ever before, and radiation curing technology known as environmental green technology (UV curing technology is one of them). In this climate, the benefits are shallow, and they have been given full attention and have achieved rapid development. UV light-curable inks are a type of environment-friendly ink developed rapidly in this environment. In the current prevalence of high-end tobacco and alcohol, pharmaceutical packaging, and promotional brochures, it has rapidly occupied the packaging and printing market with the advantages of instant curing (drying), free of volatile solvents, and simple and convenient application. UV screen printing inks can produce a variety of simulation art effects including UV frosting, UV refraction, UV wrinkles, UV crystal, UV foam and so on. On the surface of the substrate with metallic mirror gloss, the UV ink is printed on it by means of a screen printing process, and after curing by a UV curing machine, a unique visual effect is produced, as if the smooth metal surface was corroded and carved. Matte treatment, appear frosted, wrinkles, refraction, crystal, etc., it is elegant, dignified, luxurious.

The use of this type of ink is as follows:

(A) UV UV ink application features:
