UV curing without Photo initiators and no inertisation

The curing of varnishes and inks with UV light is a fast, proven and energy-efficient method for cross-linking reactive ink and varnish systems. UV curing is used in many different areas, such as in wood processing or surface coating. The new FREEcure UV system, developed by IST METZ together with BASF SE, represents a new kind of cross-linking technology. The shared patent resulting from the collaboration follows the approach of increasing the UVC percentage in the spectrum of a UV lamp.

FREEcure is a revolutionary technology that achieves outstanding results with the option of opting out:

  • Photo initiators
  • Inertisation
  • Electron beams
