Technical Information Paper - Inter-Coat Adhesion Related to Flame Treatment

Technical Information Paper - Inter-Coat Adhesion Related to Flame Treatment

What happens when flame treating is used between printing an ink layer over another.

Nazdar's UV and UV-LED container inks have been formulated to provide excellent inter-coat adhesion; meaning adhesion when one layer of ink is printed over another, between ink layers is excellent. For plastics printing, it is common to flame treat the surface prior to initial printing. This paper takes a look at the effect of flame treating between printing an ink layer over another.

Blurring the Line Between Commercial and Industrial Printing

Blurring the Line Between Commercial and Industrial Printing

It sounds so simple: Ink on paper. It’s a process that’s been around for thousands of years. Yet getting ink to adhere to paper — or any substrate — is actually a somewhat complex chemical and physical process. Paper is easiest material to print on, but even it has adherence challenges, as anyone who has ever has their hands blackened by newsprint can tell you. Those challenges are compounded when non-paper substrates are involved.

UV Inkjet Versus Traditional Analog Methods of Decorating

UV Inkjet Versus Traditional Analog Methods of Decorating

Over the past decade, advancements in inkjet technology have revolutionized the printing process. White inks; UV LED curing; the ability to inkjet on semi-flat products; the development of ever-faster single pass printheads; higher resolutions with grayscale capabilities; increased print-to-product offsets; improved software; and the ability to communicate with SAP-type systems have all made businesses look hard at changing the traditional methods of analog printing they have historically employed for part decoration.
