ChemStream’s technological demonstration of UV-LED coating and printing technology

ChemStream attended the 9th edition of Eurofinish from September 27th to 29th , 2011 in Flanders Expo, Ghent.

As member of the VOM, ChemStream had a technological booth where the UV coating and printing technology was demonstrated as an integrated industrial concept towards a sustainable workflow.

In cooperation with its industrial partner Sadechaf, (UV (LED) – technology), ChemStream participated in the innovation track where visitors came in contact with the most up to date technologies in their application fields.

ChemStream illustrated how coatings could be cured with the modern UV-LED technology. At the same time the digital printing process was illustrated by jetting a high performance UV-LED curable inkjet ink with a piezo drop on demand gray scale printhead

The diversity of the technology was illustrated by printing on base coats and by printing with an overcoat varnish. The digital image was printed in a wet on dry and wet on wet process. Both type of processes were illustrated on glass, metal and plastic substrates.

ChemStream also gave a presentation during the seminars on the mechanisms, the functional flexibility and the implementation of UV technology.

During the three days fair, ChemStream gave more than 50 live demonstrations to the interested visitors, representing SME’s and scientific institutes. The response was very positive and has led to new cooperations.
