UVDTF® Sheets allow you to get your UV prints directly onto hard substrates. Instead of using your UV printer to print directly to hard objects (which could be limited in production, owing to only being able to print to 1 object at a time, or limited to materials that are not iregularly shaped), you can print insetad with your UV printer to UVDTF® Sheets, 1 image at a time, or multiple images at a time, essentially creating a UV printed sticker. Then simply peel and transfer your UV "stickers" to your hard objects. Great for irregular materials, curved materials, and ultra-tall or very large materials, that otherwise may not be possible to print directly to).
NOTE: While the UVDTF Stickers are water-resistant and wear-resistant, they are not as resistant to the elements as direct to object UV printing, therefore UVDTF should be considered still experimental in so far as improving the water and scratch resistance is still in development.
The UVDTF® prints will adhere to almost all hard substrate materials including Puzzles, Canvas, Cell Phone Cases, Leather, Glass, Labels, Metal, Crystal, KT Board, Acrylic, PVC, ABS, EVA, Plastic, Mobile Power Banks / Chargers, Stone, U disks / Thumb Drives, Silica Gel.
- Print to A film (print with UV ink, and add a layer of varnish print for best results)
- Laminate A film to B film
- Peel and apply
UVDTF usage requires careful use of Printing with Gloss Varnish, Temperature, Pressure and Technique of release for optimal application results. In addition some substrates will require adhesion promoter chemical to clean the surface and ensure good adhesion. Use of Heating Roll laminator is required.
