What is U.V. Drying?

U.V. drying is a method of drying or polymerizing ink or coatings that relies on catalysts activated by ultraviolet radiation. When the ink is exposed to radiation with wavelengths between 10 and 400 nanometers, drying or polymerization will occur. This radiation is usually supplied by special lamps located at useful places on the printing or coating machine.
