Surface Pre-Treatments for UV Curing Ink Systems
Nazdar offers a variety of adhesion promoters that can help with difficult to adhere to substrates. The quick reference guide below helps to correctly specify the appropriate adhesion promoter for your application.
The Nazdar adhesion promoter range can be used with any UV curing digital ink, regardless of manufacturer, to improve the adhesion of the ink on the target substrate.
The five promoters in the range are wipe on products.
Using a clean, dry, lint free wiper, moisten with the adhesion promoter and wipe the surface to be printed. Cover the entire substrate with primer making sure to get a uniform deposit across the surface.
Allow primer to dry thoroughly before printing (Approx. 10 minutes depending on humidity levels)
Print the newly primed surface as soon as possible. The primed substrate may be stored for up to 24hrs after application, possibly less with in very humid environments.
UV curable inks should be printed onto the thoroughly dried primer.
For best adhesion, allow the printed surface to post-cure for 24 hours at room temperature.
