We work with UV (ultraviolet) curing inks. They are the best in the market. Ultraviolet rays dry the ink right during the printing process thus decreasing the printing time and providing great quality. For their longevity UV inks are used in applications where the final product must retain a long life of existence such as road signs. For their high quality they are used for print on a very wide variety of substrates such as plastics, poster, canvas, metal.
The benefits of UV inks are uncountable. Drying speed, viscosity, hardness, scratch and abrasion resistance are just some of them.
The alternatives to print on acrylic are PVC printing, printing on canvas, aluminum printing. Each of them has their advantages and disadvantages over acrylic print.
