Printing ink hubergroup will use the IST UV Days 2019 in Germany (13-16 May) to present ‘NewV cure’ - a patented solution for determining the curing degree of UV inks.
“With NewV cure, we end all subjective methods of curing determination and create a new standard for quality management in UV curing,” said Roland Schroder, product manager UV at hubergroup. “It will help to reduce waste and rejects due to incomplete curing. As our previous tests were very successful, we are excited to present first results with NewV cure to IST UV Days attendees.”
“Our new science-based approach provides an easy and objective evaluation of UV curing within a few minutes,” added Dr Carina Sotebier, head of central analytical lab at hubergroup. “To determine curing level of UV inks, we use a test liquid and an electronic test device. By testing a predefined extract, NewV cure can identify the quality level of a printed product.”
