dc.description.abstractUltraviolet/Electron Beam (UV/EB) technology is changing the ink industry rapidly. As the technology continually improves and expands, it will soon overpower traditional ink systems. The cost of UV/EB materials and machinery are coming down because the volume is going up. There is also a reduction in operation costs when switching to this technology. UV/EB inks are better for the environment than most conventional ink systems because they reduce energy and do not emit volatile organic compounds (VOCs). They have a quick turnaround rate due to the quick cure and fast press speeds, as well as they improve the overall performance by enhancing mechanical properties and providing a better shelf appeal.en
