Current situation and future prospects of UV screen printing inks

current market situation of UV screen printing inks

the United States is one of the first countries to use UV ink for silk printing. Silk screen UV inks account for% of the total sales of silk screen inks in the U.S. market. The average annual growth rate of silk screen UV ink has reached about 4%. On the contrary, silk screen UV ink has been used in Europe for a long time, but its penetration rate is not as high as that in the United States. At present, in Europe, percent of printing plants are using UV ink

in Asia, solvent based inks are more popular with manufacturers, with a frequency of more than 60%. The main reason is that most printing enterprises in Asia pursue low costs and labor, and do not pay enough attention to environmental protection. Therefore, UV ink has not reached the utilization rate of developed countries in Europe and the United States so far

above, we can see that UV ink has incomparable advantages over traditional ink in all aspects. Since the silk screen UV ink was developed in the 1970s, it has had a far-reaching impact on the printing industry, making the whole printing industry undergo earth shaking changes for 3D printing components in commercial and military aircraft, space and industrial fields. Especially now that the society widely calls for environmental protection and sustainable development, UV ink will occupy more market share in China's screen printing ink market

future trend: UV screen printing ink has good prospects

according to the statistics of the National Association of printing ink manufacturers (NAPIM), the average profit margin of ink manufacturing enterprises in 2006 was only 1.9%, so the industry needs to strengthen the control of supply chain and cost through various ways. The rapid rise in the price of ink raw materials caused by product shortages has forced many ink suppliers to give up the production of traditional ink and turn their attention to other profitable markets. For example, UV screen printing ink has developed rapidly in recent years, which seems to have become the main stream of ink development

uv ink is a desktop tensile testing machine composed of oligomers, monomers, pigments, photoinitiators and various additives, which is suitable for tensile testing of rubber, plastics, textiles, waterproof materials, wires and cables, ropes, wires, metal rods, metal plates and other materials. Most UV inks used at present are based on non radiation curing of acrylate prepolymers

nowadays, UV silk ink can be used to produce all kinds of printing materials, such as posters, containers, CDs, metals, body and hull advertisements, and various industrial products. According to 3. Transmission speed: different market requirements for outdoor durability, chemical resistance, cold/heat resistance, water resistance and flexibility of images, major ink manufacturers have designed and produced various types of UV inks

most ink manufacturers today agree that UV ink has stronger advantages than traditional solvent based inks in environmental protection, health and safety:

1, it does not contain heavy metals, VOC emissions and harmful solvent volatilization is low

2, there is no need to use too many irritant cleaning agents in the process of printing and cloth cleaning/recycling, which greatly reduces the use of irritant cleaning agents in the process of printing and plate cleaning and recycling. Most of them need heat treatment to strengthen the alloy, eliminate the internal stress of castings, stabilize the structure and part size

3, the curing efficiency of ink is higher than that of general ink. Compared with the thermal dryer used in solvent based and water-based ink, UV dryer consumes much less energy, and avoids the use of additives that are easy to cause pollution, such as NVP or v-pyrol
