Colornet Press Has Upgraded To All HUV Inks
The recent upgrade to the Heidelberg CD74 has enabled Colornet Press to run all HUV inks on its presses and become more environment friendly. We are an FSC certified printer and use FSC certified papers along with wide variety of recycled stocks.
HUV or High Sensitivity UV inks are the latest technology and allow printing without VOC’s or ozone. The HUV ink has more photo initiators requiring less UV to cure, there is only one light in the press, requiring less electricity to be consumed, and the narrow band of light does not create ozone. HUV ink is cured and dries with an excellent gloss level and great rub and scuff resistance, eliminating the need for coating. Today we only use coating for visual and tactile effects.
