UV cured

A better life

for your



UV inks are made out of organic compounds and pigments and are free of heavy metals. Direct printing of the UV inks on glass containers makes the use of paper and plastic substrates obsolete. The ink cost is a fraction of the total

label cost.


UV inks are cured by UV lamps which makes the decoration scratch-, water and pasteurization resistance. With the

colours C(cyanea) M(magenta) Y(yellow) K(black) and white as a basis you will be able to create your own very big scale of colours.


The total cost of ownership of direct digital decoration is

more than competitive to current high-quality decoration

such as self-adhesive labels, sleeves or screen-print for any order quantity.


Recycling of the with UV inks printed bottles has no effect

on the recycled glass or environment.
