UV inkjet, in turn, is the digital alternative to UV flexo and screen printing and a natural complement to electrophotography. While few inkjet technologies offer resolutions as high as those achieved by dry toner electrophotography, inkjet intrinsically enables faster printing. It also has interesting esthetic and functional features:
UV inkjet produces an extremely smooth and high-gloss surface that makes solid colors pop and enables you to create 3D-textured effects.
Not only is it waterproof, it is also second to none when it comes to resistance to scuffing and scratching, soap, chemicals, and heat.
These properties explain why UV inkjet has gained a firm foothold in the health and beauty market and why it is the technology of choice for durable labels on household and industrial chemicals or for industrial labels on all sorts of tools and equipment.
