M/IQ LAM UV Inks for cards

Gans Ink and Supply Company introduces our just released, M/IQ LAM ink system. Designed for the production of plastic cards on most presses utilizing Mercury Vapor curing systems, these inks can be designed to either wet trap, or dry trap, in line. This product exhibits the highest adhesion numbers in the card manufacturing industry, even when printing 400% or more coverage. We suggest pretesting substrates and overlay for adhesion. This product is developed specifically for PVC, but may also work on polycarbonate, styrene, and other plastic substrates with proper surface treatment. Testing is recommended. If you are considering purchasing an offset press to produce secure or non-secure plastic cards, please give the Gans team a call.
