UV Printing on Wood
UV printing on wood?
Yes, that’s right! This is an advanced wood processing technology that uses UV inkjet technology to print patterns on the surface of wood. It has the advantages of bright colors, high precision, waterproof and anti-fouling, and environmental protection etc.
Advantages of UV Printing
UV printing technology can print very delicate and bright colors on the wood surface, it brings the effects of which normal water printing base could not achieve. Besides of that, UV ink has various colors options and could perfectly present the tiny details and colors of traditional art and modern design.
UV printing technology uses high-precision print head, which can print very delicate patterns on the wood material, and can also print from various angles. Compared with traditional production processing and hand-painting, it is more delicate and can achieve perfect effect.
Waterproof and anti-fouling
After UV printing, a protective layer could be formed on the surface of the print wood to get the effect of the waterproof and anti-fouling, it makes the print wood to be more durable. This technology is suitable for the production of home decoration and the commercial advertisement industry.
UV ink adopts the principle of chemiluminescence, which could be quickly cured by the ultraviolet rays, and will not create any harmful substances or volatile organic compounds. That is why it is environmental protective, and also meets the requirements of environmental protection standards.

Requirements & Design
Communicate with customer to get client’s purpose and get proper design, including sizes, colors, presentation styles and other requirements, then carry it out with final artwork.
Choose Wood Material
According to the requirement and the design, collect the proper wood material, usually solid wood board or wood-based board would also be fine, just need to pay attention to the board color and texture, as well as the requirements of size and thickness.
Prepare Sampling Equipment & Materials
Prepare professional UV printing equipment and UV ink. For UV printing that requires personalized effects, special printing colors and other treatments are required.
According to the design and selected print wood material, UV printing is carried out. It needs to be checked and accepted after completion, and adjusted in time according to customer feedback.
Customer Acceptance & Service
After printing is completed for samples, it would be sent for client’s approval. Once if there are any defects of the samples with approved design. Then sample would be re-arranged. During the approval stage, it is necessary for efficient communication and professional services.
