New UV LED lacquers from WEILBURGER Graphics

 

With immediate effect WEILBURGER Graphics GmbH, based in Gerhardshofen, Franconia, is offering a total of six new lacquers for the use of LED-based drying systems for the offset and flexo printing.

 

These are two UV-LED lacquers which can be applied by regular coating unit:

SENOLITH® UV GLOSS LACQUER LED 360750

SENOLITH® UV MATT LACQUER LED 360760

 

two UV-LED inking unit lacquers:

SENOLITH® UV OFFSET GLOSS LACQUER LED 369855

SENOLITH® UV OFFSET MATT LACQUER LED 369865

 

as well as a UV-LED-based structure gloss hybrid lacquer system:

SENOLITH® UV OFFSET MATT LACQUER HYBRID LED 369866 in combined printing with

SENOLITH® UV GLOSS LACQUER HYBRID LED 360753

 

The general advantages of LED curing are:

  • Energy-saving compared to conventional UV technology
  • Radiation energy is available immediately
  • (no waiting times for starting up or by cool down)
  • minimal heat input into the substrate
  • high durability of the radiators
  • possible pointed radiation
  • Lamps do not contain toxic substances, i.e. mercury
  • No ozone development at the used wavelengths
  • Lacquers for absorbent substrates, such as paper and cardboard

 

The new lacquers of Weilburger are characterized by good gradation, very high gloss / good matt values as well as minimal yellowing tendency and are currently available for the both wavelengths 385 nm and 395 nm.

 

Arno Dürr, Sales Director of WEILBURGER Graphics GmbH about the new LED lacquers: “A trend in the LED curing of printing lacquers, inks and adhesives is noticeable for several years and the variety of materials is constantly increasing. Nowadays, qualitative LED lacquers are comparable with conventional UV lacquers and are also gradually received in the packaging industry.” Arno Dürr continues: “Especially the economical and ecological advantages of LED curing to other drying and curing processes are obvious and we are expecting a continuously increasing demand for LED lacquer systems as soon as the most printers have converted to the new LED UV technology. This is why we are first starting with this six standard lacquers with which we can cover a large number of requirements and we will also expand our portfolio of UV-LED lacquers by special and effect lacquers in the coming years.”
