DRYING - By exposure to UV high pressure mercury vapor lamps.

DRYING TIME - Using a two lamp machine, belt speeds upto 45 metres per minute can be achieved.

EXTENDER - The colour strength of the inks can be adjusted by the addition of extender base uvw415.

ADHESION - Good to paper, board and screen printed materials.

MESH - The correct deposit of ink can be obtained using meshes in the range of 110T to 140T.

COVERAGE - Upto 60 square metres per litre can be obtained with fine calendered meshes.

STENCILS - Special direct emulsions resistant to water based inks must be used. The number of coatings should be kept to a minimum. This will ensure that the thinnest stencil film is obtained and this will give low ink deposits especially in fine detail areas. Special indirect systems are also now available for UV water based inks.
