What is H-UV Print Technology? – The New Generation of LITHO Printing

Barnwell Print instant drying powderless H-UV technology uses less ink, which is itself volatile organic compound free. The printed product recycles more efficiently through easier separation of the ink from the paper. The printed image especially on uncoated / recycled stocks is significantly sharper and brighter. This helps and encourages Barnwell Print’s clients to use recycled paper that might previously have been shunned, due to the poor image quality associated with some of these stocks.


What are the problems with traditional litho print?

1. Dull imagery on uncoated papers
2. Drying Problems
3. Marking

Dull imagery on uncoated Paper – Finally! The endless years of dull flat images lacking detail and definition on uncoated papers, recycled papers and open carton board are now over. H-UV prints on top of the material and dries instantly. This gives a crystal clear image which we call Ultra HD Print.

Drying Problems
Have you ever noticed that your traditional litho print has rubbed or is delivered still wet and prone to rubbing? Have you ever been told the ink has not dried because of the material it’s printed on? Do you have to pay for a coating to prevent this or is your printer coating without you knowing? Well we can guarantee you will not have any of these problems with Barnwell Print. Ultra HD Print eliminates rub, any drying problems and does not require coating, simple.

Marking – This comes from having to print both sides of the sheet, when passing back through on the second side, the still wet ink is prone to marking your sheet. Ultra HD Print enables the ink to be dried via a UV light source which instantly cures the ink to ensure no marking can occur, the ink is dry before it even lands in the delivery, meaning 100% mark free print on every sheet.
