It is now possible to produce offset printing inks that can utilize the advancements in UV-LED lamp technology. Not only is it possible to develop inks that can be used for packaging applications, it is also possible to provide inks that can be used as a primary food package. As the technology continues to grow, the ability to utilize these curing processes will become more commonplace.
