Like Ink Mate works for conventional, UV Mate is our solution for UV printing operations. UV Mate eliminates issues caused by low-quality substrates and inks, reducing dot-gain and improving release characteristics. The result is better mileage, less picking and hickies, enhanced color clarity, sharper print quality, reduced press room waste and improved efficiency. In addition, UV Mate will not swell UV blankets and works well with UV hybrids.
Directions For Use
Thoroughly mix 1/2 to 1 ounce of UV mate into each pound of UV ink on or off the press
If the substrate is extremely poor, the addition of more UV Mate will help overcome transfer and picking problems
Store UV ink treated with UV Mate as you normally would store your UV inks. UV Mate will not separate or deteriorate over time.
