What is H-UV Technology? - The new generation of litho printing
What are the problems with traditional litho print?
1. Dull imagery on uncoated papers
2. Drying Problems
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.
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.
What is the downside of H-UV?
None! We are not joking you will see nothing but improvements to the print quality.

Shorter Total Turnaround Time
Extremely effective in shortening the time from receipt of materials to delivery.
Improved Quality due to Powderless Operation
None of the troubles associated with the scattering of powder granules and much easier post-press.
Elimination of the Dry-Down
Simple color determination, so printing with client in attendance and production printing are easier
Environmentally Friendly – The H-UV system contributes tremendously
to a better environment inside the printing plant because it does not discharge ozone, does not use powder and is nearly odorless.
Effective Space Utilization
Since the H-UV system is compact, installation space is minimal and no area is needed to place printed items that have not yet dried.
