Unlike solvent inks that air dry or cure using heat, UV ink instantly reacts to UV light, drying it faster than any other method available. The ink dries instantly, it does not have time to evaporate into the air or be absorbed into the material it is printed on. As a result, the printed color is more vibrant and can be printed on a variety of surfaces. That also makes this method a much cleaner process as there is no time for smudging or spilling. UV printing also avoids emitting volatile organic compounds (VOC’s) that are extremely harmful to the environment.
UV ink is as durable as it is vibrant. The design is scratch and abrasion resistant, meaning that you won’t have to worry about the ink chipping from the material. Although, if you purposefully try to remove the ink it will scratch with constant or very harsh abrasion.
