New LED screen printing white from Siegwerk

Process: LED UV screen printing
Application: Labels
Series: SICURA Screen LEDTec
Product number: 81-010322-6

Excellent adhesion on diverse materials, with very high opacity and good scratch resistance.

With this new development for LED UV screen printing, Siegwerk has managed to create yet another excellent product. No matter where it has been used, it has never failed to attract words of praise – at the Gallus Innovation Days for example (see adjacent article). The label shown here was printed at the Gallus Innovation Days at a speed of 100 m/min.

The new LED white screen printing ink has higher pigmentation than normal and exhibits impressive opacity at low viscosity. Areas and texts can be easily printed even on large amounts of ink. The white is silicone-free, lies very cleanly and develops no pinholes at all.

It can therefore be overprinted by screen, flexographic, offset or letterpress printing with no problems. Another important quality is that it does not yellow, which has always been a common problem for LED white so far.
