Flint Group, in collaboration with leading OEM’s and lamp manufacturers, has developed and is now launching a full range of low energy UV and UV LED curing inks for sheetfed applications: Ultraking XCURA and Ultraking XCURA LED. Ultraking XCURA is specifically formulated to meet the curing challenges of low energy UV technology. A key feature of XCURA is that one product will print on certain non-porous substrates, as well as standard coated and uncoated substrates. Ultraking XCURA LED utilizes specially selected materials to match the narrow and targeted wavelength (395nm) that is typical for high power UV LED lamp output. UV LED lamp technology utilizes high power light that emits diode technology, which requires significantly less energy to operate than traditional UV. According to the company, this results in as much as 40% reduction in energy costs.
