Monoplak Process UV Series is a fast curing, multi-purpose system designed for screen printers for a variety of substrates. Know through Europe for its excellent durability, very good flexibility, and ideal for semi-automatic, carousel, and in-line presses, With Monoplak you are also guaranteed that there are no voluntary additions of heavy metals during the production process. Monoplak Process colors are the choice of many UV printers because this series is NVP free and does not contain N-Vinyl-2-Pyrrolidone (NVP). Its color selection is rich and dense allowing greater latitude for the process printing screener. For halftone printing we recommend using a plain weave mesh ranging from 350 to 420. This series is available in gallons only.
Monoplak is suitable for printing on the following substrates; styrene, rigid acrylic and vinyl, PETG, HDPE, clear polycarbonate, card-stock, and Coroplast ®.
Monoplak offers 095 Base, 701 Mixing Black, 702 Mixing White in addition to 9 Pantone registered colors. These very dense colors offer the printer a great deal of latitude during the printing process ensuring only the highest degree of printing quality.
Actual cure speeds will vary depending on ink-color chosen, mesh count/weave, type of UV lamp/settings, and other printing parameters that effect ink-film thickness. Ink adhesion can only be achieved if the ink film is adequately cured. Substrates having differing receptivity to UV ink or on Dyne/cm less than 40, it may be necessary to cure ink more effectively by the addition of MPG thinner or 095 base to achieve satisfactory adhesion.
This ink series is ready to use, however, if required it is possible to adjust the viscosity by adding DILMPGA (MPG Thinner) but no more than 2 to 10% by weight.
