PLASTIC GRAPHIC INDUSTRY
Unlike paper, plastic is not a material that absorbs ink. For this reason, the most common is to use polymeric inks that crystallize when exposed to ultraviolet radiation. This type of printing requires that the surface of the plastic have a certain surface tension. In the case of PET and PP, it is usually subjected to corona treatment or a primer is applied. both treatments have a determined shelf life. In the case of PVC it is normally not necessary. The plastic sheets are sold squared for their correct use in printing with automatic feeding, such as offset.
- Offset UV
Plastic sheets. Usually for high volume print runs of units Very high print quality.
Plastic sheets and smaller volumes very common in large formats. Typically used for less demanding prints.
- Flex UV
Plastic rolls. Usually for large volumes of continuous printing. Very common in the label sector. High print quality.
- Digital UV
In sheets (digital flat bed) and coils (continuous printing) Usually in small print runs. Very high print quality.
Plastic rolls. Usually for large volumes of continuous printing. Medium/high print quality
