UV Industry of the Month: UV Waterless Printing
What is waterless printing? Waterless printing is an offset printing process that eliminates the water or dampening system that is used in conventional and UV printing. A unique silicone rubber coated printing plate, waterless inks and a means of temperature control on press are all components of a waterless printing process. Waterless printing offers quick roll up, faster make-ready times and less waste of costly substrates. Also, chemically tainted wastewater from traditional lithographic printing is eliminated. With an ever-increasing demand from customers to be greener, waterless printing is an option many printers are taking a closer look at.
