ECO-UV inks deliver great results for indoor applications
such as labels and POPs. For outdoor applications, ECO-UV lasts up to
two years when clear coat is applied as a finishing process (ECO-UV
Available for VersaUV LEJ and LEC models configured
exclusively with CMYK and white inks, ECO-UV S expands up to 220
percent. This greater elasticity allows graphics to wrap uneven
shapes, indentations, corners and curved surfaces. With ECO-UV S,
prints mold perfectly to the contours of PET bottles and plastic cups,
and adhere flawlessly to vacuum-formed plastic that is commonly used
for items ranging from food service trays to auto parts packaging and
consumer electronics cases.
* Room ventilation and a Roland approved air filtration
system are required. Please consult the MSDS for more guidance on the
proper use and ventilation of ECO-UV or ECO-UV S inks.
VersaUV boasts a unique ink configuration that includes
white ink and clear coat in addition to CMYK colors. The high-opacity
white ink is ideal for producing rich, dense color graphics on clear,
dark opaque and even metallic substrates. The clear coat, available
only in original ECO-UV, adds capabilities that include high-gloss area
highlighter (spot varnish), full flood gloss finishing for added
durability and special effects, such as three-dimensional textures
(emboss) by printing multiple layers of clear coat. The combination of
these features enables the production of exclusive prints that command
premium prices, while reducing considerably production costs over
Droplets of ECO-UV ink are cured by the UV lights shortly
after they land on the surface of the media, leaving almost no time for
the droplets to react or be absorbed by the media. This virtually
eliminates any ink and media compatibility issue, making the VersaUV
compatible with a wide variety of coated and uncoated media. Many stock
media for equipment such as label printers and offset printers can be
printed with the VersaUV without any special treatment. Users of the
LEF-12 benchtop VersaUV can take full advantage of this tremendous
media compatibility as the LEF-12 enables printing directly on
three-dimensional objects such as awards, pens and giftware, acrylic
plaques, golf balls, cell phone covers and even laptop computers.
With ECO-UV inks, the absence of ink reaction and
absorption means colors will be consistent across different media types
without requiring profiles specific for the media.
