LE UV & LED UV consumables.

Your print shop is already equipped with LE UV or LED UV technology?

Use our Saphira consumables to achieve optimal print results on your LE UV and LED UV equipment.

How to choose the right consumables?

Applications involving LE UV and LED dryer technology use so-called ‘highly reactive’ UV inks. These inks have a different chemical composition and a higher percentage of photoinitiators than conventional UV inks. This means that these inks require significantly reduced UV dryer capacity to cure, while giving equivalent results.

Heidelberg offers a wide and coordinated range of consumables for LE UV and LED dryer technology. All consumables in the range such as inks, coatings, dampening solutions, and washing fluids as well as rubber blankets are tested for their suitability in advance and coordinated. This makes it possible to get started with production straight away, without having to perform complex and cost-intensive material tests.

Our LE UV & LED UV consumables:

Saphira Blanket Pro UV 2000

The Saphira Blanket Pro UV 2000 is a printing blanket for high-quality UV printing. It enables optimal ink transfer and guarantees outstanding dot definition and a controlled dot gain in UV as well as LE UV and LED printing. The blanket delivers very good results on different substrates like absorbent and non-absorbent materials. As well as good resistance to swelling and solvents, the blanket also offers very good cleaning properties (with automatic cleaning systems as well as with manual cleaning) and has a long service life.
