Benefits of UV curing with inert gas :
Increased network density of the polymers:
+ Improved hardness, wear and abrasion resistance of the coating.
+ Higher gloss.
+ Increased chemical resistance.
+ Much better curing of problem colors like opaque white.
Savings of photoinitiator of 8-15% to <2%, which leads to:
+ Reduction of the coating costs.
+ Odor reduction.
+ Reduction of global migration, which is important for food packaging.
+ Reduce the tendency to yellowing.
+ Curing without photinitiators in combination with DirectCure lamps
Increase of productivity:
+ Increase of the production rates and/or drop of energy costs.
+ Less heating of the substrate
+ Energy saving up to 60 %
+ Ozone formation is avoided
