UV flatbed printer inks are important consumables in printing and are also divided into several major types. Many customers don’t understand ink. Usually the manufacturer is responsible for providing. Next, I will introduce you to the different inks.
Water-based ink: The cost of water-based ink is very low, no pollution, and the color is very bright. However, since the evaporation rate of water is slow, the image of the sprayed aqueous ink is not easily dried and absorbed by the medium.
Solvent-based ink: A weak solvent ink is one of the intermediate between water and oil. You can spray the coating on the medium first, so the effect is bright and the adhesion is very strong! However, solvent-based inks do not have white ink, and (white ink is not mature) printing on dark media is a big problem.
UV printer Ink: As a special solventUV printer ink, it cures immediately after UV exposure, firmly adheres to the surface of the media, and does not dissolve in water or other organic solvents. It is very suitable for users of UV printers.
On the one hand, it solves the problem that the water-based ink is not easy to dry, and also solves the great defect that the weak solvent ink cannot print the white ink. It also prints relief and other effects, which greatly expands the application of inkjet technology, enabling Large format UV flatbed printers to print directly on virtually any material. However, the ink is also defective, and the color of the cured ink is less vivid and brighter than the aqueous ink and the weak solvent ink. Therefore, when users purchase UV printer ink, they must combine with the products they print, and then determine which ink should be bought, so as to avoid unnecessary trouble and cost waste.
