And being in Minnesota, this story owes much to a heavy winter snow storm.

LED vs Traditional UV Curing

LED vs Traditional UV Curing

Nazdar's UV-LED inks have been specifically formulated to cure at 395 nanometers (nm). In general, UV-LED systems have a tolerance range of +/-5 nm and an nm output curve that is relatively narrow but spans approximately +/- 15 nm. The initiators selected for UV-LED inks target this range, but are also reactive outside this range. This means that UV-LED inks should be reactive to both UV-LED and mercury vapor curing systems. This may vary to some degree depending on the specific ink's color and pigment load.
