Energy Curing, also known as UV/EB-Curing, is a technology for curing printing inks, varnishes, plastic and adhesives, using UV-light or electron beams. This method allows curing to take place within seconds, without the use of volatile organic compounds (VOC).
Advantages for using radiation curing are:
- No volatile organic compounds and therefore no emissions
- Fast curing, higher production speed
- Low energy consumption
- Small space requirement
- High and consistent quality of the manufactured products
- One component systems for easy handling
