    The UVgel quality advantage

    A unique ‘print-then-cure’ technology with instant-dry gel inks, cured with UV LED lights. The advantage of a gel over a fluid is that it is possible to deposit more ink in less passes, without the ink flowing in and over the medium. Ensuring razor-sharp prints with a wide colour gamut and consistently repeatable over time and over different machines. Odourless and extremely durable.

    Mixed glossy/matte finish in one print

    The ingenious FLXfinish+ technology maximizes the UVgel advantage with either a single – or a two-step curing strategy. It enables you to print high value applications with a velvety matte finish for interior décor or a brilliant gloss finish for display and packaging, and now also mixed matte- gloss applications without additional costs.

    Premium application range. Creativity is the only limitation

    Sustainable by nature

    UVgel technology is GREENGUARD Gold certified, so you can trust that applications for indoor use meet strict chemical emission limits.

    Compared to latex or eco-solvent inks, UVgel requires around 40% less ink to build up the same image quality and colour intensity.

    Colorado-family printers come equipped with internal filters and require no dedicated extraction. Radiation and noise emission are below stringent standards.

    The energy-efficient, low-temperature LED curing process substantially reduces energy consumption. Energy consumption in standby mode is very low, thanks to the instant-on printing capability.
