Revolutionizing the Printing Industry: The Benefits of Using LED Coatings

As the printing industry evolves, ProCoate stays at the forefront of innovation, offering advanced coating solutions tailored to our customers' needs. Our latest introduction, the UV LED coatings, is an epitome of our commitment to innovation, quality, and sustainability. But what are UV LED coatings, and why are they beneficial in the printing industry?

UV LED is a type of coating designed to cure when exposed to UV light. The curing process is tailored to the specific wavelengths emitted by LED equipment on press. The usual wavelengths for standard printing presses are around 395nm, which our coatings are designed to work with optimally.

But why are UV LED coatings so essential for the printing industry? Let's delve into the benefits they bring:

1. Energy Efficiency: LED lamps on the printing press offer massive energy savings, a compelling reason to switch from traditional UV curing. Although the initial cost for UV LED coatings might be higher, the significant energy savings justify the investment.

2. Suitable for Heat-Sensitive Substrates: LED curing doesn't produce as much heat as UV curing lamps. This feature is particularly advantageous when working with heat-sensitive substrates, reducing the risk of warping or other heat-related issues.

3. High Reactivity and Fast Curing: UV LED coatings are highly reactive and cure rapidly under exposure to the appropriate light. It's crucial to keep the lid on to prevent unwanted exposure and ensure a smooth and efficient process.

4. A Step Towards Sustainability: With the rising importance of environmentally friendly practices in every industry, using energy-efficient UV LED coatings is a significant stride towards sustainability.

These benefits, and more, are why ProCoate has incorporated UV LED coatings into our diverse product range. We see them as a major game-changer for the printing industry, particularly for label printers ready to transition from UV curing to LED curing.
