Triangle Digital Introduces UV-Curable Package
Includes UV-curables inks, adhesion promoters, and a clearcoat
Triangle Digital is adding to its digital product line with the introduction of its UVcurable package. The package comprises ZND (UV-curable inks), BondAid I and BondAid II adhesion promoters, and CristalBond protective clearcoat.
The latest addition to its Picture Perfect line of digital inks, ZND is designed for use with the Zund UVjet 215-C and Inca Eagle UV-curable printers. This 4-color inkset uses pigments for vibrant colors, greater color density, and weather resistance. Triangle also says ZND provides better adhesion for surfaces such as styrene, acrylic, and Sintra.
Its BondAid is specially formulated, optically clear alcohol-base coating to improve adhesion between UV-curable inks and rigid surfaces. BondAid I is designed to work with metal, glass, and tile; BondAid II is engineered to work with common plastic substrates such as acrylic and Lexan (it has had limited success with styrene and will not improve adhesion on HDPE/molded plastics). BondAid is hand-applied.
CristalBond D007 is a water-based clearcoat to help "pop"colors on UV prints and to increase resistance to chemicals and abrasion. (Triangle Digital: www.triangledigital.biz)
