UV Cationic

Suitable for most demanding specifications of flexible packaging for printing a wide range of polymer, paper & foil substrates.

A selection of the Quartz ranges are listed below, all of which when exposed to high energy UV are instantly converted to a solid using an acid catalysed process. If the ink type for your application is not listed please contact us.

INKS – A full range of colours is available for supply either as bases for in-house blending or as pre-matched colours. Other speciality colours are available e.g. iridescent, pearlescent and invisible fluorescent.

LACQUERS – Available versions range from very high gloss to matt, providing exceptional scuff, heat and product resistance. Compatible with specifically developed solvent and water based ink systems.

ADHESIVES – Providing excellent lamination bonds, available in either clear or opaque versions for pre or post cure applications.

RELEASE COATINGS – Silicone and other release coatings are compatible with the Quartz range of inks.

PRINTING APPLICATIONS Shrink Sleeves, Cartons, Flexible packaging, Polyamide casings, Labels, In Mould applications, Industrial applications.
