Extend the Benefits of UV Printing by Using the Right Plates

A big change in the offset printing world over the last decade or so has been the rise of UV. As UV becomes more popular with commercial printers, thanks to new, low-energy UV technologies, here at Kodak we’ve been developing new offset plates that can extend the benefits of UV for printers.   

UV printing offers several advantages over conventional offset printing, such as fewer emissions of VOC’s, fast-drying inks, the ability to print on additional substrates, vibrant colors and high gloss levels. Low-energy UV delivers all these benefits and more with a smaller, less expensive system using less energy.
