Investigation of Printing Inks and Coatings Formulations for UV-LED Cure

V. Petry, Rahn AG

• only a selected number of Photoinitiators work under LED

• LED 365 shows the best results for a magenta ink.

• A 3 level (6-2) DoE shows that DETX and TPO/BAPO are sufficient for a good cure

UV LED Curing in Low Migration Printing - Controlling the Variables

Once parameters for a low migration printing process are established, the most critical variable remaining is curing. Despite challenges for ink formulators, UV LED is the key curing technology eliminating this vulnerability.

Development of waterbased UV curable inkjet inks for printing on plastic substrates

Dieter Holzinger and Takahiro Nakao, 2011 RTE Conference

Why are UV-curable inkjet inks not used for foodpackaging today?

•MIGRATION of monomers and photoinitiators

•SMELL of non perfectly cured films

What are the main problems of purely water/solvent-based inkjet inks?

•High drying times
