#3/4: The first UV inks at drupa 1976 versus LED UV at drupa 2016

Geranium 3During drupa 1976 I looked at things with different eyes. I had just started studying for my teacher certificate print technology and I was writing a paper about inks. I visited all known ink manufacturers, from the famous market leader K&E to Dutch pride Royal van Son. Inks had started a quiet revolution. Manufacturers made inks with new pigments which resulted in much better colours. The inks dried much faster and were suitable for more types of paper and cardboard. The most remarkable of drupa 1976 for me was my initiation into UV inks. Read the parallel to what we can expect on drupa 2016 on our article page.
